The Colorado Rockies announced this afternoon that the club in a letter dated May 19, 2009 gave notice to officials with the City of Tucson, Arizona that the team intends to make arrangements to relocate its spring training and year-round player development operations to a new facility outside of the Tucson area beginning with the 2011 spring season.
