D-backs Partner With Ram Truck
Fans to Swim in Ramtrucks.TV Pool in 2012
PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that the Ram Truck Brand has been named the new presenting partner of the pool at Chase Field. One of the most unique features of any ballpark in America, the pool, now named the “RamTrucks.TV pool” sits 415 feet from home plate in right-center field.
“Everyone wants to hang out in the pool at Chase Field, as evidenced by our players after last year’s division clinching victory,” said D-backs’ President & CEO Derrick Hall. “We’re excited to have the Ram Truck Brand be a part of this memorable experience for our fans.”
The “RamTrucks.TV pool,” which also features a hot tub, measures 460 square feet and holds 8,500 gallons of water. It sits on a pool deck measuring 1,288 square feet.
“Ram Truck is excited to be the official sponsor of the Arizona Diamondbacks pool,” said Sr. Marketing Manager Roy Hernandez of Chrysler Group, LLC. “D-backs fans are extremely passionate about baseball and their team and we are just as passionate about the trucks we build. This pool sponsorship is the perfect fit for us to connect and share with these fans in a fun and unique way.”
The first home run ball to land in the pool was hit by current D-backs broadcaster and then-Cubs first baseman Mark Grace on May 12, 1998, the 38th home game in franchise history. Since then, there have been 40 more homers that have landed in the pool – 21 from the D-backs and 19 from their opponents.
