Diamondbacks Want Fans To 'Blackout' Chase Field

For a time, it didn’t look like the Diamondbacks were going to sell out tonight’s Game 4 of the NLDS. But the team’s official Twitter account says tickets sold briskly after Arizona beat Milwaukee Tuesday night:

Over 5,000 #Dbacks fans purchased tickets overnight for tonight’s #NLDS Game 4. Join the #blackout movement! http://t.co/WCexha6v

And what’s this “blackout” they’re talking about? The Diamondbacks have many different uniform color combinations (something many of us who are uniform purists don’t care for), and tonight they will be wearing their black jerseys. So:

In case you missed the memo, wear black #Dbacks gear tonight! Don’t have anything? We’ll give you a black shirt when you get here! #blackout

And in case you don’t have any such gear, they’re going to help you:

We’re giving out plain black t-shirts to the first 35,000 fans that need ‘em for tonight’s Game 4 at Chase Field. #blackout

This has been done before, by another team that has black as one of its colors; the Chicago White Sox did it for their 2008 AL Central tiebreaker game against the Twins. Here’s some video from that game:

Like or hate the D’backs and/or their uniforms, an entire stadium dressed in black should look pretty cool. Game time is 9:37 p.m. ET.
