Standing amidst the dry barren desert land of the U.S. Southwest stands the burgeoning metropolis of Phoenix, home of Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks are a relatively new addition to pro baseball compared to most teams, having joined the league in 1998, less than fifteen years ago. However, it did not take them long to make their presence felt, as they managed to win the World Series, baseball's ultimate prize, in 2001. As a result of their rapid success, Arizona Diamondbacks tickets began selling faster than ever, as the franchise cemented its name as a prominent fixture in the world of sports.
Following their quick rise to the top, the D-Backs had to go through some frustrating years on their path to rebuilding. Despite their ace pitcher Randy Johnson sticking with the team through the 2004 season, there were just too many other personnel changes for the team to be competitive during that stretch of years. However, this did not interfere as much with ticket sales as one might think it would. This is in large part thanks to the facility in which the Diamondbacks host their games, Chase Field, which was revolutionary for becoming the first baseball stadium constructed in the U.S. to have a retractable roof. The level of comfort and convenience offered by this modern facility was enough to entice the state's baseball fans to keep attending games, and so Arizona Diamondbacks tickets remained hot sellers in spite of the team's woes.
Right now, it's beginning to look like the fan's patience and loyalty have been worth it, as the D-backs are back in the playoff mix once again. In 2011, in one of the greatest examples of over-achievement ever displayed in professional sports, the team managed to reach the playoffs after being predicted to finish in last place in their division. They went on to lose a hard-fought series to the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Division series. Despite the eventual loss, the team had successfully delivered a message to baseball fans everywhere that they were back to being a team to be reckoned with. With this relatively young franchise appearing to be catching its second wind, there is no doubt that holders of Arizona Diamondbacks tickets will have plenty of exciting games to look forward to in the years to come.
