Play Ball!

One of the first things that newcomers notice about Tucson is that we’re crazy about the University of Arizona’s sports program. Wildcat logos and the block “A” symbol can be found all over town, at residences and businesses alike. What many recent transplants don’t realize, however, is that the Old Pueblo also is home to professional sports teams. We asked Betsy Bruce to profile three of them: the Tucson Saguaros (baseball), FC Tucson (soccer) and Tucson Roadrunners (hockey), with the story starting on page 84. We hope that whatever your hometown sports affiliations are, you’ll make a point of getting out and supporting these exciting teams.

Even if you don’t have the skills of a pro athlete, you can enjoy recreation all around the city, thanks in part to the newly completed Chuck Huckleberry Loop. This 131-mile circuit is perfect for walking, running, cycling, dog walking, and simply exploring the area. To get introduced, turn to page 90.

While you’re taking in the sights, you’re bound to get hungry, and we sent Sarah Burton to get the scoop on eight local restaurants that have opened within the last year. The mouth-watering details begin on page 96.

There are so many fascinating folks who call this place home that we’ve decided to introduce you to two of them you might meet around town: retired-federal-agent-turned-novelist Mark Rusin (page 106), and Sarah Sellers (page 104), a nurse anesthetist whose skills as a runner earned her a second-place finish in the Boston Marathon.

Elsewhere in this issue, Elena Acoba gives you a glimpse into the life of an Emergency Medical Technician, and we present a comprehensive list of area hospitals in our Medical Guide, which begins on page 35.
