D-backs FanFest information »

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today instructions and policies regarding obtaining autographs from players, coaches and broadcasters during four autograph sessions from 11:15 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday at SUBWAY® D-backs FanFest at Chase Field.

Autograph session vouchers will go on sale at the Chase Field Ticket Office beginning at 9:30 a.m. for current D-backs' season-ticket holders. Voucher sales for the general public will begin at 10:30 a.m., or immediately after the completion of the season-ticket holder sale.

All autograph vouchers are $5, with the proceeds of the sales going to the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation. Fans can purchase a maximum of one table per session and two vouchers per table. A combination of two D-backs players, coaches or broadcasters will be available for each session, thus guaranteeing fans two autographs for each $5 session purchased.

The D-backs will also have an area in right-center field at Chase Field for kids 12 and under to receive free autographs from players, coaches and broadcasters during four sessions from 11:15 a.m.-3 p.m. Vouchers for each session will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis at the top of each hour from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in front of the Kids Autograph Area. Up to one parent can accompany each child in line.

Among the D-backs players currently scheduled to attend include Willie Bloomquist, Geoff Blum, Craig Breslow, Trevor  Cahill, Sam Demel, Stephen Drew, Barry Enright, David Hernandez, Aaron Hill, Daniel Hudson, Ian Kennedy, Jason Kubel, John McDonald, Wade Miley, Gerardo Parra, Joe Paterson, J.J. Putz, Ryan Roberts, Joe Saunders, Bryan Shaw, Justin Upton, Chris Young and Brad Ziegler. Coaches expected to participate include Manager Kirk Gibson, Pitching Coach Charles Nagy, Bench Coach Alan Trammell, Bullpen Coach Glenn Sherlock and Third Base Coach Matt Williams. Broadcasters Daron Sutton, Mark Grace, Greg Schulte, Tom Candiotti, Oscar Soria, Miguel Quintana and Richard Saenz will also be in attendance, as well as Luis Gonzalez and several other former D-backs players.

Season tickets can be purchased during the event through the Select-A-Seat program, which highlights available seats for the upcoming season throughout the ballpark. Mini-plans will also be made available to fans, as well as information on group outings. Single-game tickets will not go on sale until late February.

A brand new area called the D-backs Digital Clubhouse will provide a central hub for connecting with the team through digital media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, MLB At Bat and the Digital D-backs Wi-Fi portal. D-backs players will interact with fans through the team’s social media accounts and fans will have the chance to participate in an on-site scavenger hunt via Twitter to win D-backs tickets and prizes.
