Arizona Diamondbacks postseason trivia

How well do you know the history of the Diamondbacks?

The Arizona Diamondbacks are one of the newer franchises to break into MLB over the last twenty years, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a rich history in a 19-year period. Since they’re playing in the NL Wild Card Game on Wednesday night, challenge yourself in this quiz to see how well you know the history of the Diamondbacks.
