The history of baseball in the desert

Thursday, April 6 marked opening day for the Arizona Diamondbacks, whose first crack at the 2023 MLB season came against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 7:10PM start at Chase Field.

The D-Backs rose to quick acclaim when the expansion team – after just four seasons in the dugout – won the 2001 World Series, becoming the fastest to clinch a title after stealing the series from the favored New York Yankees 4-3.

The team’s top pair of pitchers, Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling (pre bloody sock fame which, ironically, came during his 2004 season with the Red Sox), earned co-MVP honors.
