Arizona Diamondbacks

Chase Field's 'Uptown' sign is coming down

Prior to the 2010 season, the Arizona Diamondbacks dedicated a portion of their ballpark to right fielder Justin Upton.

Aptly named 'Uptown', the right field bleachers were a tribute to the player who was supposed to be a perennial All-Star and face of the franchise.

While Upton has shown glimpses of being that guy, his inconsistency has caused some to doubt his future.

And Thursday, Arizona Sports 620's John Gambadoro reported Chase Field's future will no longer included Uptown.

It's tough not to read anything into the move, especially with persistent trade rumors surrounding the player. Should the D-backs trade the outfielder they would have to get rid of the section, so this could be a pre-emptive move.

Then again, it's possible this decision has no ties to Upton's future other than the player not wanting his own section in the ballpark.
