Phone lines open during the "Diamondbacks Live" pregame show starting at 6:00PM and will remain open until the end of the post-game show. For 13 years, FOX Sports Arizona has been a partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation, raising funds for important charitable causes. In just the last four years, the FOX Sports Arizona broadcast fundraiser with the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation has generated $420,557 for the community. 

The D-backs launched the D-backs Give Back Jersey program in February and outfitted more than 22,000 youth baseball and softball players and their coaches in Little Leagues across the Valley. The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation donated more than $500,000 to the unique program and hope to expand the program next season to other Little Leagues across the state of Arizona. 

In its inaugural year, more than 30 leagues took advantage of the D-backs Give Back Jersey program, with some leagues registering more than 1,500 kids. There are more than 75 color combinations which include the traditional Sedona Red, white, black and gray as well as throwback colors purple and teal and unique options like camouflage and gold. Since originally bringing the concept to these leagues, enrollment increased by more than 4,000 kids. In addition to receiving the jersey and cap, each player received a drawstring backpack, D-backs-branded necklace and bracelet and a welcome kit with merchandise discounts for family members at the D-backs Team Shop.
