Arizona Diamondbacks Baseball

Major League Baseball in Phoenix, Arizona

The Arizona Diamondbacks is one of the newer professional sports leagues in Arizona, but they are certainly just as beloved as other pro teams in town. Winning the World Series against the Yankees in 2001 certainly didn't hurt!

Here is your guide to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Everything you need to know, except what to put on those huge foot-long hot dogs (I recommend grilled onions, grilled peppers and mustard, or chili and cheese, depending on how messy you want it to get), is included in these pages. Have a great time at the games; let's hope the Arizona Diamondbacks make it to the playoffs this year.

    It wouldn't be a complete game without Baxter. Learn his real full name, and see his picture here. No, that's not him on the left. That's just a mascot wannabe!

    In July 2013 the Arizona Diamondbacks added a second mascot to the team. No, Baxter isn't angry about it....
