Arizona Diamondbacks Hope to Lure Fans to Chase Field With Singles Night This Friday (Yes, Tequila Will Be Present)
Earlier this month, only 16,664 fans witnessed a 10-4 Diamondbacks win at Chase Field against the Florida Marlins, which is the lowest total in franchise history.
With the Snakes sitting at 35-58 in mid-July and 20 games back of the division leader, D-backs management are thinking of creative ways to get fans to the ballpark.
This Friday they will host Singles Night at Chase Field as Arizona plays the San Francisco Giants.
What better way to get fans to come and watch a dreadful baseball game than a chance to get laid?

The single folks in Phoenix will get a chance to meet and greet one another before the game in the Miller Lite Diamond Club beginning at 5 p.m. The fun (and drinking) will continue through the game.
Tickets are just $15 and information can be found here.
According to the D-Backs Web site, there will also be complimentary tequila tasting held by Sauza. This bodes well for all of the shy singles who plan on attending. Now they can get a few shots in them and gather up some liquid courage before talking to that hot blonde.
Besides, what relationship doesn't start with a few drinks and bad decisions these days?
We're giving credit to the Snakes for a somewhat bright idea to draw fans out of the air-conditioning and to Chase Field.
It's not like the Snakes rank dead-last in home attendance this season (that honor goes to the Cleveland Indians), but the team does fall in the bottom half of attendance in the league. Through 47 home games, the D-Backs have drawn 1,182,430 total fans.
This means that an average of 27,258 fans attend every home game (just over half the full capacity of Chase Field), but we have to wonder how many of the fans are there to see the opposing team. When the Yankees were in town last month, the crowd was noticeably pro-New York.
So if you're looking for an excuse to drink and hopefully get some action, head down to Chase Field this Friday.
Even if you don't get any, those tequila shots will make the game more enjoyable to watch.
