About the Arizona Diamondbacks
One of the MLB’s newest kids on the block, the Arizona Diamondbacks have only been around since 1998. Yet despite how wet behind the ears this team should be, their performance has been anything but. Whether the D-backs have been eating their Wheaties or that hot Arizona sun makes for monster ballplayers isn’t clear, but something’s going on that’s made the Diamondbacks a force to be reckoned with from the start.
Like Fire Right Out of the Gate
You would think that such a young franchise would spend a lot of time teambuilding before becoming competitive, but the D-backs wasted no time in showcasing their excellence. The Diamondbacks set a league record when they bagged a World Series win in 2001 just four seasons after their inception, making them the fastest expansion team to do so. The fact that they took out the Yankees that year to clinch the championship is just icing on the cake, though Yankees fans sure didn’t enjoy getting manhandled by the equivalent of a toddler.
Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks have amassed a pretty impressive set of accolades. In addition to the World Series win, they’ve got five NL division titles under their belt, one NL pennant, and one Wild Card game, with the latter being the most recent in the 2016-2017 season. Overall, Arizona’s got one hell of a record – as of the 2017-2018 season, the franchise has a .493 regular season record. Not bad for a team that’s barely 20 years old!
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the Diamondbacks play?
The Diamondbacks play at Chase Field, smack dab in the middle of downtown Phoenix. The retractable roof stadium was originally named Bank One Ballpark until naming rights changed hands in 2005. Of course, it’s only fair that a ballpark in one of the hottest parts of the country has a swimming pool in right-center field – and, yes, you and 34 of your closest friends can have poolside seats if you don’t mind dropping a few grand for the privilege.

Diamondbacks tickets go on sale before the MLB begins its regular season. In fact, Diamondbacks tickets to games played at Chase Field are available months in advance, as are D-backs tickets for away games across the country at rival ballparks.
