Executive Director of the Scottsdale Charros, Dennis Robbins met with us during a pre-spring training practice with the San Francisco Giants to tell us about the Charros, the newest upgrades to the Charros Lodge at Scottsdale Stadium, and the organization’s commitment to the community and its students.Since 1996, the Charros Lodge has been a focal point of the baseball excitement at Scottsdale Stadium. Ticket sales to the Charros Lodge go to help fund various scholarships. “This is our largest fundraiser,” explains Robbins. He also says that the Scottsdale Charros lease the Scottsdale Stadium from the City of Scottsdale and then sublease to the San Francisco Giants during spring training. This year marks the 56th year the organization has hosted spring training. Initially, they hosted the A’s, then the Orioles, the Red Sox and now, the Giants.“Buying tickets in the Charros Lodge during spring training is a VIP experience,” Robbins states. A ticket includes unlimited food and some drink tickets, plus the best views of all the baseball action. Last year’s spring training fundraiser netted $750,000, half of which went to educational scholarships, which are used at in-state schools. Various scholarships include master’s degree opportunities in teaching, national teaching board certifications and student teaching opportunities at the Mary Fulton School of Teaching at ASU.
