Amazing what a NL West title will do for you. The Arizona Diamondbacks, playing in virtual obscurity until the 2011 postseason, will get the chance to once again show off their regular season play in front of a national audience or at the very least, in front of a regional audience outside of Arizona. In addition to the ESPN2 announcement that they plan to air the opening day game at Chase Field on April 6th against the San Francisco Giants, they will be shown on Fox Sports no fewer than six times.
The Dbacks get to start off their Fox appearances on April 7th against the same Giants in the first series of the season. Clearly the Dbacks-Giants rivalry is becoming known as one of the more entertaining in Major League Baseball.
The other currently scheduled games:
Saturday May 5th – @New York Mets
Saturday May 19th – @Kansas City Royals
Saturday June 2nd – @San Diego Padres
Saturday June 30th – @Milwaukee Brewers
Saturday July 14th – @Chicago Cubs
