From the Business Journal Of Phoenix’s W.J. Hennigan :

Arizona Diamondbacks fans experiencing financial hardship that prevent them from attending baseball games have an opportunity to receive free season tickets from the organization.

Team President Derrick Hall announced a fan scholarship program earlier this month that treats qualifying fans to 2008 home games.

Existing season ticket holders who may have experienced a change in personal circumstances will be given priority, followed by other fans who can demonstrate financial need along with their love for the game and the D-backs.

“We are a part of this community, and we want everyone to enjoy the games no matter what their economic status is,” said Hall. “This needs to be an experience available to everyone.”

Sounds like a fine idea…and hopefully the D-Backs will look favorably on the Grimsley family’s application.
