The Arizona Diamondbacks are a baseball team that plays in the National League West. They won the National League West division in 2001 and made the World Series. The team was led by two of its best pitchers, Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson, and finished with over 100 wins. The team also won its first division title in 1999. They went on to win the 2001 World Series over the New York Yankees and became the fastest expansion team in the major leagues.
The team’s name is a nod to Arizona’s desert climate. The state of Arizona has a desert climate, so Colangelo wanted to expand the team’s regional fan base. The organization started a statewide fan contest to name the team. Some fans submitted suggestions for names that incorporated desert creatures or baseball diamonds. The winner was awarded a pair of lifetime season tickets.
The Arizona Diamondbacks’ current color scheme is similar to that of the Houston Astros. Their colors are brick red, sand, and black. The Phoenix Coyotes adopted these colors four years before the Diamondbacks. The current Arizona Diamondbacks color scheme is similar to the Houston Astros’ current look, but is not exactly the same.
The Arizona Diamondbacks won their game against the Houston Astros last night, 4-2. Although Yoshihisa Hirano was not perfect, he still had a stellar outing. Brad Ziegler entered the game in the seventh inning to strike out George Springer. He then stayed in the game to save the game and give the Diamondbacks a lead.
The Arizona Diamondbacks changed their uniforms slightly for the 2020 season. The previous set of uniforms featured snakeskin patterns. Instead of the snakeskin pattern, the Diamondbacks changed to a standard grey uniform. Earlier, they had a teal-trimmed grey uniform. The team also wore primary Sedona Red home uniform and alternate teal home uniform. A black version of the uniform was also worn in the middle of the season.
The Arizona Diamondbacks also have a committee for their saves. While the Diamondbacks’ closer Addison Reed blew his save yesterday, the Diamondbacks still had the chance to win the game. They had two closers on hand and a closer to save a tie game. However, the committee is starting to look a little tired.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have a new closer. Brad Boxberger was named closer last week and Archie Bradley was supposed to be the closer during spring training. However, Torey Lovullo changed the closer role last week. Bradley’s emergence was unexpected and he hasn’t allowed a run in his last 7 appearances.
In the 9th inning, the Arizona Diamondbacks have a new closer. They have no official name for the new closer but haven’t decided yet. Torey Lovullo said they would discuss the matter before today’s game.
