Diamondbacks' College Night At the Ballpark, $5 Tickets For Students

The Arizona Diamondbacks are anxious to get people in the seats. Attendance so far this season has been disappointing but it should pick up now that the Suns' season is over and then get another boost when the Coyotes playoff run ends.

The team playing near-.500 ball and being competitive and gritty will help the most though. As Kirk Gibson said, ultimately it's up to the players to give the fans a reason to come out and watch.

Helping things along until that all catches up is a few special events this weekend:

AFRICAN AMERICAN HERITAGE DAY

JACKIE ROBINSON DAY
¨ All players will wear No. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson
¨ Pre-game recognition for three local Jackie Robinson Scholar Graduates
¨ Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation 50/50 Raffle to benefit Jackie Robinson Foundation

COLLEGE NIGHT
¨ College students can score a ticket to the D-backs game for just $5!
