Now Hitting has been designed as a clearing house of information about the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball club. This site is designed to provide information and news on the Diamondbacks as they begin their quest for a National League Western Division championship. Rather than having to search on multiple web sites to find information about the Diamondbacks, Now Hitting attempts to gather this data to a central location for your enjoyment. The site is a mixture of current information along with historical data covering the Arizona Diamondbacks Major League Baseball franchise.
NowHitting.com represents one fan's love affair with baseball. It began when a Major League Baseball franchise was awarded on March 9, 1995. The site chronicles the timeline of bringing baseball to the Phoenix area. It is a result of countless hours of research to uncover the details about the team, its players, and baseball in general. I invite you to travel along through the history of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The information and graphics are provided to help you become part of the game. Whether you are a Diamondbacks fan or just someone curious of what baseball in the desert is like, you should find something of interest to you. So I invite you to stop by often and see what's new with this National League West franchise and its fans.
NowHitting is a fan operated web site meaning there are fewer boundaries to what can and cannot be published. This results in a more honest and objective viewpoint when compared to more traditional team coverage. NowHitting is an open communication tool and users are invited to state their opinions as they feel appropriate. I will attempt to include various points of view so that the whole story can be told, not just what was in the press release. So sit back and enjoy NowHitting. I think you'll agree that it represents baseball for the new millennium.
If you are anything like me (and I am sure everyone is like me) you are always wondering when the Diamondbacks are playing next. I’ve built an Excel CSV file with all of the Diamondbacks games that can be imported into your Outlook Calendar. This way you can be reminded of when you need to go to the game or find a television to catch all of the action. You’ll never be Diamondbacks time challenged again. The instructions for importing the data are given below in case you have forgotten how to do that.
After downloading the.csv file (Windows users: right-click the link and select Save Link As... or Save Target As... depending on your browser of choice then choose a destination on your hard drive. Mac users: Control-Click the link and select Save Target As...), please follow these instructions to import the schedule to your Outlook calendar:
