D-backs To Wear Throwback Jerseys In Philadelphia Tomorrow


PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks will wear "throwback" jerseys tomorrow, Aug. 23, during their road game in Philadelphia as part of the Phillies' 1990's Retro Night. The D-backs wore the black alternate uniform and cap combination during the 1999 and 2000 seasons that features purple and teal trim.

The team will wear the same "throwback" jerseys during Throwback Night on Aug. 31 and fans can bid on the game-worn, autographed "throwback" jerseys starting Aug. 23 online at www.dbacks.com/auctions.

The D-backs and Budweiser encourage fans to join alumni Augie Ojeda and Albie Lopez for a special watch party starting at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 23 at Game Seven Grill, located just outside the main gates at Chase Field. The watch party will feature a customized menu and fans will have the chance to get their photo taken with the 2001 World Series Championship trophy as well as win several D-backs prizes throughout the night.

On Aug. 31, the D-backs will host Throwback Night, featuring the 2nd annual Alumni Game presented by Denny's, in partnership with Sanderson Ford. Shortly after the D-backs vs. Giants game, D-backs alumni including Luis Gonzalez, Matt Williams, Travis Lee, Reggie Sanders and Steve Finley will take the field to play a three-inning exhibition game.

Fans that follow the D-backs on Twitter (@Dbacks) and Instagram (@dbacks) can recreate their favorite D-backs moment using Instagram video or Vine and tweet it using the hashtag #DbacksThrowback for a chance to win a "throwback" jersey and two tickets to the game where they will be able to watch batting practice on the field and serve as an honorary co-captain during the Alumni Game.

Fans can purchase tickets for Throwback Night, which includes free admission to the Alumni Game, by calling a D-backs representative at 602.514.8400 or online at www.dbacks.com/alumni.
