Arizona Diamondbacks Games

Since being in Arizona, we have already been to THREE Arizona DBacks game. The great thing is that we didn't need to spend money at any of the games. (We just moved here and our budget is a little tight.)

The first game was on G's bday in the middle of August. We got seats in the upper level. What was the best part of this game meeting some of G's friends.



I honestly don't remember much about what happened at the game, because we were so busy looking around and talking his friends. The stadium was absolutely amazing. It was like watching the game in an airplane hanger. I even got my picture with Baxter. G was surprised by this because I am NOT a fan of mascots. I don't know why but they scare me.



The second game we got tickets through Gary's co-worker. Both games have been very last minute and unexpected. Side note: In AZ compared to OK, all the sports teams get along great and talk with each other. It's refreshing teams working together in the same market. We are thinking of getting Dbacks tickets, and we talked with an inside sales person for 20 minutes. This is not something that would happen.

The second game we walked around the stadium taking pictures and breaking it down. We always do this to every game we go to. We talk about things we like, don't like, things we can take to our teams, etc. The list could go on forever. If you love going to sporting events, don't work in sports. After you work in sports you view games in a COMPLETELY different way.


The really cool thing I like about their suite level is all the pictures of baseball's finest.









Here are some shots from the outside.  




 

 

Once inside the ballpark it is like two different atmsopheres. The lower level and the suite level. I'm sure you are all thinking of course but most games I haven't noticed that shift. Here are some random shots from around the park.





This is the shot from our first ticket view. Not bad. G and I were talking about this last night too. I like views higher up because then you can see the whole field. If you were super close it would be a different view.

Also this is why I love coming to games because each time we sit in a different place and have a different view and different experience.


This is the view from straight center. Still not a bad view.


This is a fuzzy view from third base side. 








Outside the main entrance is a fun interactive area. They had the world series playing and tons of opportunities for photos.
