Coyotes to host Diamondbacks Night when Red Wings come to town
Hockey players won’t be the only professional athletes in attendance when the Arizona Coyotes host the Detroit Red Wings on March 16, as that night the Coyotes will host D-backs Night.
Various D-backs players will be at Gila River Arena for the game, with each having a different role.
Outfielder A.J. Pollock will do the ceremonial puck drop, while Luis Gonzalez will serve as Top Dog (ceremonial captain) for the night. D-backs mascot Baxter will join Coyotes mascot Howler in signing autographs for children during the first intermission.
Additionally, D-backs in-game organist Bobby Freeman will play throughout the game.
The D-backs will return the favor during their season when they host Coyotes Night on Sept. 8.
