When people come across the site; many of them assume it is managed and maintained by the Arizona Diamondbacks or Major League Baseball Media. That is not the case. It was created out of equal parts of passion and desperation by one fan who at the time had a difficult time finding information about the Arizona Diamondbacks. The team was relatively new and did not yet have a loyal following. Likewise the Internet was just taking off and there were very few sites that provided information about baseball especially the newest franchise.
Baseball is Life
The players are transported to destiny.
Physical, mental, and spiritual forces converge.
The game evolves.
Your perception of reality blurs.
The game explores the interaction of
perceived and potential reality.
By evaluating the levels of self-realization,
their differences will begin to disappear.
To fully realize and experience the game
requires focusing your consciousness.
Recognize boundaries as stumbling blocks
to vision and imagination.
Broaden your mind, broaden your universe.
The game is comprised of mental images,
endorphin-induced visions and
The game is governed by chaos,
order, data reclusion, and data exchange.
Until the last out is registered
And the cheers subside,
enjoy the game.
The last remnants of autumn sunlight filtered down upon the playing field at Bank One Ballpark. It was a beautiful September evening for the last regular season game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres. The ballpark roof had just opened; the cheers of the crowd were beginning to subside. Forty-eight thousand fans were now settling into their seats waiting for what promised to be a memorable end to the Diamondbacks inaugural season. The pre-game festivities were in mid-stride. Along the base paths and in the outfield, the starting players were going through their final warm-ups before the game started. As game time approached, I quietly stood near the on-deck circle with my family. The children gazed about taking in all of the sights and sounds of this historic game. None of us could have imagined we would be standing here on the field as the grounds crew put the finishing touches on the baselines and batters boxes. Nor could I have anticipated the events that were about to occur.
