Despite not having a baseball team for many years, Arizona has had a strong connection with the sport. The state has remained the site of MLB’s Spring Training since 1946, which meant that the fans got to see some of the best baseball teams live in action. The state was finally awarded a franchise in 1995 and the fans had their own team to support.
The Diamondbacks played their inaugural season in 1998. By 2003, the franchise had won 3 division titles, 1 National League Pennant and a historic World Series title. The team became so dominant that they notched their hundredth MLB win in only their second season of playing professional baseball.
Lows after the high:
The mid 2000s brought in a period of lows for the D-Backs. From winning the World Series in 2001, the team next won a division championship in 2007. In the interval, the D-Backs had difficulty qualifying for the playoffs, let alone winning the World Series again. Managerial and staff changes took place in an attempt to rejuvenate the team.
Kirk Gibson became the team’s new manager in 2010 and he led the Arizona Diamondbacks to their fourth division title. Things started looking up and performances slowly improved.
Under Chip Hale, the D-Backs’ new manager, the franchise will look to return to winning ways. As the new season kicks off, watch the team live in action as they take on the Cardinals. All you have to do is buy Arizona Diamondbacks St. Louis tickets.
