The Arizona Diamondbacks will be sporting some vintage threads on Saturday evening against the San Francisco Giants. As part of Alumni Night, the current D-backs team will wear the purple and teal uniforms they used to wear previous to 2007. Then, after the real game is done, former players in Arizona will take the field for an exhibition of Diamondbacks alumni.
Luis Gonzalez, Matt Williams, Steve Finley and Brandon Webb will all participate in the game.
The official team page explained who all is set to be there.
The Alumni Day festivities will begin with an on-field pregame ceremony to introduce the following D-backs alumni expected to attend: Joel Adamson, Scott Brow, Bobby Chouinard, Alex Cintron, Midre Cummings, David Dellucci, Elmer Dessens, Chris Donnels, Erubiel Durazo, Mike Fetters, Bernard Gilkey, Andrew Good, Robby Hammock, Mike Hampton, Ken Huckaby, Eric Knott, Travis Lee, Mark Little, Albie Lopez, Matt Mantei, Quinton McCracken, Mike Morgan, Vladimir Nunez, Armando Reynoso, Reggie Sanders, Junior Spivey, Andy Stankiewicz, Kelly Stinnett and Greg Swindell. Players are subject to change and some may not participate in the game.
If you aren't planning on going to the game, this is a great excuse to get out there. Other teams have decades of history and players and have actual "Old Timers" games. This will be the first of many alumni games to come, but the former players -- even the oldest ones -- just aren't quite old enough to be considered old man ready.
Tickets start at $14.
