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.

  1. 1 When was the first time Arizona made the playoffs?

    1. 1999
    2. 2000
    3. 2001
    4. 2002
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    In just their second season, the D-backs became the fastest expansion team to reach the postseason, thanks to "Big Unit" Randy Johnson and Luis "Gonzo" Gonzalez

  2. 2 True or False: The Diamondbacks are the fastest expansion team to win a World Series.

    1. True
    2. False
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It only took 4 seasons for Arizona to win a World Series, unlike the 1997 Marlins who did it in 5.

    1. Erubiel Durazo
    2. Steve Finley
    3. Luis Gonzalez
    4. Craig Counsell
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It was the only time in Mariano Rivera's future Hall of Fame career he blew a save in the postseason. It also denied the New York Yankees of a four-peat.

    1. Zack Greinke
    2. David Hernandez

    1. Buck Showalter
    2. Bob Brenly
