If you want to get an autograph at a D-Backs spring training game, then head on down to sections 101-104 and 120-123. Section 120-123 are where you can get autographs from your favorite D-Backs, although there are plenty of autographs to get from their opponents in sections 101-104 as well. The official line is that autographs take place from when the gates open until 40 minutes before the game, but you can usually get them up until the national anthem. Autograph seekers will also want to take advantage of the two D-Backs players signing on the left field concourse as well. These signing sessions take place between 12:00 and 12:15 for day games and 6:00 and 6:15 for night games.
Stop by the lake and see the fish as you make your way from the parking lot to the stadium. Kids especially will love looking at the fish, making the lake a fun part of every D-Backs spring training game.
