Baseball’s Opening Day is Upon us, Go Diamondbacks!

The crack of the bat, the smell of the fresh green grass, and the roar of the crowd! This can only mean one thing, baseball’s opening day is upon and it’s time for a new season to root on the Arizona Diamondbacks. While we struggled in past years to clinch a playoff spot, we are hopeful that this will be D-Backs year to get back on the national stage.

The Diamondbacks opening day was held on Monday, April 4th and featured a cavalcade of activities for parents, sports fans and children alike! Our Diamondbacks faced off against the Colorado Rockies and the stadium gave away 2016 schedule magnets to celebrate the event.

Here are some things to check-out at Chase Stadium while we root on the Diamondbacks.

The D-Bat Dog

The D-Bat Dog made national headlines when it was introduced as a stadium concession last year. This colossal $25 corndog is a whopping 18inches and stuffed with cheddar cheese, jalepenos and, of course, bacon. Many have attempted to champion this beast themselves, but we recommend that you share, if only to combat heartburn during the 7th inning stretch!

The Sandlot

Presented by St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, The Sandlot “is a family-focused destination that promotes a healthy and active lifestyle with a variety of fun and exciting activities for fans of all ages,” according to the Chase Field website.

If you’ve got rambunctious children who can’t seem to keep still during the game, it might be a good idea to have them work off some energy at the Sandlot. Pool

Anyone who has been a fan of the Diamondbacks knows of the the pool that sits in Chase Stadium’s right field. Adventurous baseball fans can watch the game while relaxing in a pool and eating from a full-service restaurant. Now, where else can you do that in the United States?
