The Arizona Diamondbacks were created as a result of the growing population in Phoenix,
Arizona, where there was a lack of a MLB team. In 1995, Jerry Colangelo was granted a
franchise that would soon be known as the Diamondbacks. They were to begin play in 1998,
and demand for Diamondbacks tickets was never higher, because many people who buy
Diamondbacks tickets now used to be fans of other teams before the Diamondbacks were
created. The name Diamondback comes from the Western Diamondback, a highly
poisonous rattlesnake that is commonly found in Arizona.
The Diamondbacks began play in 1998, and got off to a great start. They were able to win
division titles in 1999, 2001, and 2002, along with the World Series in 2001. Many believe
that this was due to the pure dominance of their pitching team: Curt Schilling and Randy
Johnson were the two stars. These two pitchers alone were enough to get Diamondbacks
tickets to outrageous prices around a decade ago.
After 2001, things took a turn for the worse, and Jerry Colangelo ended up selling his stake in
the team. They had a brief return to glory with a playoff berth in 2007, but again have been
floundering the past few seasons. Many Diamondbacks fans continue to purchase Diamondbacks
tickets to this day, hoping for a return to the glory that was the 2001 season.
Buying Diamondbacks tickets, grants fans access to Chase Field, the
Arizona Diamondbacks stadium, located in downtown Phoenix. It was built for the
Diamondbacks and opened on the day of their very first game. One of the most unique
aspects of Chase Field is the dynamic roof. If it's an extremely hot day, the roof will be closed and blast the entire stadium with air-conditioning.
Fans of the Diamondbacks are rabid and enthusiastic, as well as being fiercely loyal to
the team. Many of the older fans are extremely dedicated to the Diamondbacks, often
purchasing season Diamondbacks tickets every single year. Most of them are hoping for a
throwback to the original success of the Diamondbacks in 1998 through 2001, but the rest
are simply content that they have a team in the desert. After years of following Southern
Californian and Texas-based teams, in 1998 many future Arizona Diamondbacks fans were
elated to hear that they would have a team of their own. It's not uncommon to hear chants
for every single player on the Diamondbacks.
Diamondbacks tickets often sell out even when the team is doing poorly, because of this
loyalty. This rabid fan support contributes greatly to the morale and esteem of the
Diamondbacks, boosting them on to future success and glory.
