The Arizona Diamondbacks are a team that plays in the National League West division at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. Nicknamed the D-Backs, the Diamondbacks have quenched the fanís thirst for a baseball team in desert-associated Arizona.
The franchise has had historic success since its inception into the league in 1998, none bigger than their dramatic World Series victory over the New York Yankees in 2001. In game 7 off the legendary closer Mariano Rivera, Luis Gonzalez, the franchiseís most popular player, stroked a walk-off hit over Derek Jeter, leading the Diamondbacks to their first, and currently only, World Series victory. In only a short amount of time, the organization has had other great players such as Curt Schilling, Orlando Hudson, Randy Johnson, and Brandon Webb. They have also had success reaching the playoffs, doing so in 1999, 2001, 2002, 2007, and 2011.
The promising team looks to make another postseason seeding, showcasing many young and talented players such as outfielders Justin Upton and Chris Young, and All-Star starter Ian Kennedy. The Dbacks look to keep these cornerstone players and stay competitive for years to come.
