Derrick and His D-backs Monthly Chat

May 15, 2009 by · 2 Comments 

feat_feat_0007Don’t get us wrong, we are not pleased with how the team is doing either but we were not surprised to hear the answers to some tough questions given to Derrick in his Monthly chat. Yes, the team is not playing well and he is fully aware. Derrick performs in the highest management capacity of the team and is ultimately accountable for everything that goes on from finances and staffing to the team’s performance. However, as in any strong organization there is definitely a separation of authority. This is good because there seems to be accountability at the appropriate levels. Derrick gets that some of the fans are disappointed but, he is also an invaluable asset to the organization. As any strong leader does, he did not show doubt in his team, only awareness of what is going on. A great leader praises in public and punishes in private, which would be indicative of how the how the management changes took place over the last week. Read more

Inside the D-backs Fan Fest

February 7, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

feat_dbacks_0006The 2009 Arizona Diamondbacks Fan Fest was a pretty huge success. We spent some time mingling with fans and chatting with some the ticket sales staff as well as running into Derrick Hall on the field at the 5th annual event. We do not have the exact numbers of the event’s attendees but we were told that there were easily more than three times as many people as last year’s event. This bodes well for an organization that has been under some scrutiny due to some of their recent moves as of late. It appears that, despite recent criticism, there continues to be huge fan support.

Chase Field Out of Sunflower Seeds!

September 2, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

On Sunday, August 31st, the unthinkable happened at Chase Field Concessions… Sunflower Seeds were 86’ed! There were no seeds, only peanuts, to be found in the neighboring concessions. Trips to the concession stands on the other side of the stadium floor, were not fruitful. Upon arrival, we were told that the entire ballpark was out of sunflower seeds.

The ballpark remained out of seeds for the Labor Day game against the Cardinals.

Stadium representatives did not comment on the cause of the shortage but, do expect more seeds for the next Diamondbacks’ home stand.
