As we hit late-August, the Arizona Diamondbacks are very much in the thick of the National League West race.

In fact they’re leading it.

Nineteen years ago, in just the franchise’s second year of existence, the D-backs broke through to win the National League West by a comfortable 14-game margin over the San Francisco Giants.

Buck Showalter’s team went on to face the New York Mets in the National League Divisional Series, only to lose in four games.

That team is the subject of this week’s Trivia Tuesday challenge — name all 23 players that saw action for the D-backs in that series. We’ve given you the position(s) they played and six minutes on the clock.

Please note: the players are listed in alphabetical order and last names are acceptable (as long as you spell them correctly).

Good luck!
