Here’s your trivia for the night: There has never been a doubleheader held at Chase Field, but the Arizona Diamondbacks plan on changing that on August 22, commemorating the occasion with some promotions.
Teams don’t hold many doubleheaders these days, and with the roof at Chase Field, the Diamondbacks certainly have never seen the need. That will change with a day/night doubleheader: the first game is scheduled for 12:40 p.m. and the second game slated for 6:40 p.m.
To mark the occasion, the D-backs will giveaway commemorative pins to fans who attend both games. Fans will receive a voucher upon entry to the first game and must present the voucher upon entry for the second game to receive the limited-edition doubleheader pin.
During each game, fans can get the Doubleheader Deal which includes a regular hot dog, regular popcorn and regular drink all for just $6 at any Doubleheaders concession stand at Chase Field. In addition, a limited-edition D-backs doubleheader T-shirt will be available in the Team Shop for $25 during both games, while supplies last.
The team has also worked out deals with downtown businesses to help fans pass the time away (our recommendation: head for the $3 beers at Coach and Willie’s, located a few blocks from the ballpark), though kids might be happier with a discounted admission to the science museum.
