Pictures taken at the season opener for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday April 6, 2012. Alas, I had to work that day but snapped some quick exterior shots of Chase Field 2 hours before game time during my lunch hour. Game was against the San Francisco Giants. Final score: Diamondbacks 5, Giants 4.
Fun Fact: Chase Field was originally titled Bank One Ballpark and us locals used to refer to it as “the Bob”. As in “hey, do you want to catch a game at the Bob this weekend?” The Bank One corporation was later acquired by JP Morgan Chase and “the BOB” became Chase Field. I’ve yet to hear anyone personify Chase Filed the way they did with the BOB. Aren’t corporate mergers a drag?
