Let's go D-backs!

The Arizona Diamondbacks are adding some new events and activities to thier 2016 lineup. They've added some new food options (hello, Cheeseburger Dog!), a redesigned area focused on Latin culture, and a place for your pets.

LA TERRAZA

A section in the upper right field concourse has been redeveloped to give it a more "Latin vibe." The decor has been changed and new food options, including fare from Phoenix's El Guero Canelo, have been added.
