Description

A New Times investigation examines "potentially serious construction problems at Maricopa County's $ 370 million Bank One Ballpark ... that could result in sections of the grandstands collapsing." The story uncovers a written warning about the improper installation of "approximately 1,500 anchor bolts ... that support the stadium's grandstands". The reporter reveals that the team of Arizona Diamondbacks has "kept the information hidden from the Maricopa County Stadium District, which owns the facility, for more than two months." The public also has also been unaware of the potential danger to "the millions of fans who enter [the stadium] each year."
