The last Dbacks game was a home game, and happened to be on my birthday! My best friend Becky and I went to the game. I had season tickets this year, and the seats were a small luxury I allowed myself (and Becky for most of the season!). At the beginning of the game, each player had a child or 2 with him, and they got to walk out onto the field with the player to the players position, play catch, and get autographs!!
The colors were presented by the Mesquite High School JROTC unit. As a side note, I was the commander of the first HS JROTC team to present colors for the Dbacks back in 1998. . .
It was a great game, pitched by Randy Johnson. He had a complete game and 9 or 10 strike-outs. The Dbacks won, and that was at least a good ending to an otherwise disappointing season. I am hopeful that the Dbacks will be back in the playoffs next year!!
The other good news is Birthdays are sponsored by Cold Stone Creamery and with an ID proving it is indeed your birthday, you get a free full size Ice Cream!! Hooray!!
