Meet the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday evening


Arizona Diamondbacks players will descend on the Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino for a meet-and-greet autograph session this Friday.

“This is a great way to give back to the community and help promote the Arizona Diamondbacks’ upcoming season,” said Melody Wolcott, Gila River Gaming Enterprises public relations manager.

Members of the club who will attend the free event are pitchers Joe Saunders, Sam Demel and Jarrod Parker, as well as catcher Konrad Schmidt.

Fans of all ages are welcome to attend the event, which will run from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Each attendee will be provided an opportunity to have one item signed by each player. Free autographed player photos will also be available.

This is the fifth year the Diamondbacks and the casino have partnered for a meet-and-greet promotion.

Last year, more than 500 people came out for autographs and the players stayed overtime to accommodate all the fans.

“We encourage everyone to come out and take part in this great event,” Wolcott said.
