    Season Ticket Holders

    Is anyone on here a season ticket holder for the DBacks? If so, are season ticket holders the only ones allowed to see batting practice? If so, this practice stinks. Are there times they open batting practice to all fans?

    I'm a Mets season ticket holder, but I checked out the Diamondbacks' website for you, and here's what they have to say about it:

    Chase Field opens one and a half (1.5) hours before each game Monday through Thursday and two (2) hours before each weekend game. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy batting practice, infield workouts and pre-game ceremonies. There will be some dates during the season (generally when a day game follows a night game) that the team(s) may elect to skip batting practice, infield practice or both.

    I infer from the above that the answer to your question is: no, batting practice is not reserved for season ticket holders only. What happened, or what did you read or see, that caused you to think this might be the case?

    This is home now - Citi Field, capacity 41,800 - and every seat in this ballpark seemingly filled, some standees as well, anticipating a piece of history as delivered by Mike Pelfrey, the 25-year-old from Wichita, Kansas. Into a windup, his first pitch in the history of Citi Field, a fastball for a called strike to Jody Gerut. Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009

    last year I went really early to a game to see batting practice and hopefully get a ball...however, when I showed up, they only opened the field at that time for those who were season ticket holders...I was pissed, especially since it was like 110 out
