Diamondbacks vs Mets Tickets
Since becoming an expansion franchise, the Arizona Diamondbacks have struggled to develop rivalries, especially with teams outside the NL West. However, the D’Backs have always had an interesting relationship with the New York Mets. Every year, each team will travel across the country for a series on the other’s home turf. For whatever reason, almost every Mets-Diamondbacks game becomes an entertaining affair with wacky endings and walk-off hits becoming par for the course whenever these two clubs get together.
Diamondbacks vs Mets
Part of Arizona’s close connection to the Mets comes from the fact that the two teams played in the NLDS in 1999 when the Diamondbacks were in just their second season as a franchise. The series pitted legendary managers Bobby Valentine and Buck Showalter against one another and became memorable for both teams. Of course, it was Arizona’s first postseason appearance and a perfect way to cap-off a 100-win regular season. Meanwhile, the Mets ended up winning the series in dramatic fashion. The Diamondbacks were close to winning Game 4 and playing the decisive game at home. However, backup catcher Todd Pratt hit a walk-off home run to end the series in four games in one of the most memorable home runs in Mets history.
Nowadays, most of New York’s memorable home runs take place at Citi Field, which opened in 2009. The stadium features a facade that’s nearly identical to Ebbets Field and a Jackie Robinson rotunda, paying homage to the history of baseball in New York. As for the Diamondbacks, they still make their home at Chase Field, which features a retractable roof to protect fans from the desert heat but lets in enough sunshine to give the stadium an outdoor feel even when the roof is closed.
