First pitch of the 2017 NL Wild Card Game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies is almost here! Here is what you need to know before the game begins
For the first time since 2011, your Arizona Diamondbacks are in the postseason!
Soon, I will join the rest of Diamondbacks nation at Chase Field for pregame ceremonies, team introductions, the national anthem and the most anticipated moment – first pitch.
Nobody knows how this game will turnout. Division rivals are squaring off. The Rockies know the Diamondbacks and the Diamondbacks know the Rockies.
Before you arrive in your seat at the ballpark or on your comfy couch, throw everything you know about baseball out the window. Breath and take a step back. Remember the joy that this team brought us.
Try to contain your emotions, I dare you. Anxiety, confidence and excitement. We are all feeling it. Heck, I am not even playing and haven’t been able to calm down since waking up this morning at 7:30.
If you missed out on any of our coverage from earlier today, go ahead and dive in to all the analysis and predictions from our great team of writers: myself, Trisha Garcia and David Coffey.
Enjoy this one folks because you never know when the next time will be. Hopefully, a date with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS will be that next “moment,” as manager Torey Lovullo likes to say.
