  1. One of my favorite sports memories was getting to watch the Dbacks play from the pool in the outfield. It was when the pool was fairly new and my dads whole company got to enjoy the pool all night. There were a couple home run bad that flew our way and we were on the jumbotran once or twice too!

  2. My favorite memory is when my son went to a DBacks game and was thrown a ball from the left fielder and given a DBacks hat from Baxter the mascot!

  3. My favorite memory is after first moving to AZ from MI, and my first DBacks game. The Tigers 3 game series; root open, 110° outside and a perfect 70° inside.

  4. My favorite sports memory was this past Superbowl. It was the first time in 10 years that we had all our family in town so we watched it together.

  5. My favorite baseball memory is of my father taking me to Wrigley Field as a child. The pride and energy there was amazing.

  6. My favorite baseball memory was watching my son work as a bat boy for the Arizona Fall League.

  7. One of my favorite baseball memories was when I went to a game with my father and he tried to explain the rules to me. I didn’t understand what my father was talking about; all I cared about that it was a day of only him and I together.

  8. Favorite memory? They all are! It’s just one of the extra special things about living here in the Valley- spring training. We go once a year, because we can. We sit on the lawn with a million other rowdy fans and eat snacks and watch the game and watch our kids run around and enjoy life. Love it.

  9. My favorite memories are going to a lot of diamondback games when we first started dating, we had so much fun watching the game and getting to know each other!

  10. My favorite sports moment was watching the Dodgers win the 1988 World Series with my best friend. I have been a baseball junkie ever since. I love my team and my city, Los Angeles!

  11. Went to mn twins game with 15 pther rowdy college friends. Got too rowdy and got kicked out of metrodome, so we printed up tshirts that read “record 16 outs in 3rd inning.”.

  12. My favorite sports memory of all time was watching the track & field events at the Olympics in Atlanta with my family!

  13. I retweeted and lIked Visit Mesa on FB!

    My favorite sports memory was seeing Ronnie get his number retired at Wrigley Field. Listening to Cubs games isn’t the same without him.
