Chase Field a Mother's Day destination

NEW YORK -- D-backs infielder John McDonald is offering kids a chance to give their moms a trip to the ballpark on Mother's Day.

Kids interested need to submit an essay (250 word maximum) explaining why they want to spend May 13 with their moms at Chase Field to watch the D-backs and Giants.

Fifteen winners will receive up to four Legends Suite tickets and participate in a pregame meet-and-greet with McDonald.

The deadline for entering is Tuesday.

"I have a daughter, too, and I thought about how much my mom influenced me and had an impact on the goals that I had, what I did growing up and the type of person I am today," McDonald said. "There are a lot of moms out there who enjoy the game of baseball, who want to introduce their sons to baseball or their daughters to baseball and I want to bring them closer to the game as well."
