The article presents the author's views on the role played by business leaders of Tucson, Arizona, in handling water problems and baseball's spring training facilities in the city. According to the author, it is an encouraging sign that smaller water providers have asked for a seat in any water discussions concerning Pima County. The author is encouraged by the efforts of the business coalition to keep the Colorado Rockies baseball team as spring training tenants at the Hi Corbett Field.
