As part of its evolution, a diamondback rattlesnake is known to shed its skin. During the off-season, the same could be said for the Arizona Diamondbacks, as they rolled out a new lineup of ground-breaking uniforms that had the baseball world talking.
The latest production from FOX Sports Arizona’s Emmy Award winning Original Programming department is set to tell the story of how these new uniforms came to life when "D-backs Evolution" debuts on Friday, Feb. 19, at 6:30 and 11 p.m.
The half-hour show is narrated by Matt Williams and gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at what went into creating the uniforms. Highlighting the show is exclusive video shot from inside the design meetings that included D-backs players, coaches, front-office staff and the uniform designers. "D-backs Evolution"also includes interviews with many of the people who were involved in the process, including Paul Goldschmidt, A.J. Pollock, Patrick Corbin, Chip Hale and Derrick Hall. Additionally, Arizona State University evolutionary biology professor Kevin McGraw discusses the scientific advantages of the team’s colors, and the show also features factory footage from New Era Cap, which co-designed the new sublimated D-backs caps.
