News Release

August 21, 2019

Verna Swope Martin, a 101-year-old resident of the Arizona Pioneers' Home in Prescott, Arizona, is one of the Diamondbacks' most dedicated fans. She watches every game on TV, but she's never been to Chase Field. 

During a recent visit to the Pioneers' Home, staff from Governor Ducey's office heard about her fan dedication, and worked with the Arizona Diamondbacks to get her to today's game, where she met Governor Ducey and Diamondbacks players, received a special personalized jersey and watched her first baseball game in person.
