D-backs to hold Throwback Thursdays in 2015

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The D-backs will wear throwback uniforms for every Thursday home game during the 2015 regular season.

The retro jersey will be the alternate home vest uniform with purple pinstripes that the team wore from 1998 through 2006, and the team will incorporate the colors purple and teal in every game element at Chase Field.

The Throwback Thursdays will mark the sixth time the D-backs have worn a retro jersey in franchise history.

The team is encouraging fans to wear purple and teal each Thursday, and the Chase Field Team Shop will offer a wide variety of items featuring the retro colors.

As part of Throwback Thursdays, fans who purchase a Thursday game ticket with their Chase Credit or Debit card will receive a free purple Throwback Thursdays T-shirt. More details are available at dbacks.com/throwback
