Arizona Diamondbacks - Home Ballparks

Arizona Diamondbacks uniform evolution poster - a history of the Arizona Diamondbacks uniform

Fall 2023: To purchase a reasonably priced 8" x 24" plaqued mounted version of the Miami Marlins poster that's ready to hang on your wall, please visit Heritage Sports Stuff.

A. Arizona Diamondbacks – The Team Name 
The franchise played its first game on March 31, 1998. Since their first season in 1998, the team has always been known as the Arizona Diamondbacks, although the nickname is sometimes shortened to the Dbacks.

B. Arizona Diamondbacks – Home Stadium History 

Chase Field 1998 - Present
Known as Bank One Ballpark (1998-2005) / Chase Field (2006-Present)
The ballpark opened in 1998, the year the Diamondbacks debuted as an expansion team. Chase Field was the first stadium built in the US with a retractable roof over a natural grass playing surface, although since 2019 it has used artificial turf.

D. Celebrate the Arizona Diamondbacks' uniform history by owning a piece of history: 
If you love the Arizona Diamondbacks and the history of the Diamondbacks franchise, you might really love to own an original piece of artwork celebrating the team's historic uniforms as seen in the poster at the top of this blog - you can actually own one of those original pieces of art! There are only 8 pieces of original art available for sale, and when these 8 are sold, that's it, they're all sold out. 

These original watercolor paintings would make a great gift (birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift, Christmas gift, etc.) for someone you love or even a great gift for yourself (one of these framed pieces would look fantastic in your home or office). 

Each piece can be bought one of three ways: 
1. As unframed art that you could have framed or mounted yourself (the one on the left) 
2. Framed in our "Classic" framed version (the middle version) 
3. Framed in our "Deluxe" framed version (the version on the right)  

If you would like more information about this great artwork including the three ways you could purchase each piece, please visit our Arizona Diamondbacks YouTube video or go directly to the artwork website Heritage Sports Art where you can see and purchase the artwork. 

And if someone you know loves the history of sports uniforms (but maybe another team) and loves great art, please let them know that we have over 1500 pieces of great original artwork for sale at (all NFL teams, all MLB teams, all NHL teams, all CFL teams, select NCAA football teams) or check out each team's video at the Heritage Sports Art YouTube Channel 

E. Arizona Diamondbacks Ballpark Artwork
Please note that the actual original, hand drawn pen and ink sketches used for the one ballpark image shown above is available for sale to one Arizona Diamondbacks fan. If you are interested in being the owner of this original artwork of the Arizona Diamondbacks home ballpark image, please contact me by email and I can explain how it can be framed.
