Every so often I am approached by someone, usually a non-baseball fan, who asks the question, “How in the world can you possible go to every Diamondbacks home game?” They cannot seem to fathom spending 81 nights a season at Chase Field. My response is typically to tell them I have petitioned Major League Baseball to length the season but so far the commissioner has not acted upon my request.
The thing these people fail to recognize is that it isn’t just baseball that occurs but rather each night we are given the opportunity to see history unfold. Sometimes that history happens between the foul lines on the field and at other times history occurs outside the playing field. Tonight was a prime example.
