- 1999: The All-Star Game took place at Fenway, with Matt Williams and Jay Bell becoming the first Diamondbacks to start in the event. Williams went 1-for-3 with a strikeout; Bell 0-for-1 with a walk and a K. Luis Gonzalez came in as a replacement for Larry Walker, and went 1-for-2. Curt Schilling started the game, and took the loss, allowing two runs on three hits in two innings - he was replaced by future team-mate Randy Johnson, who took only nine pitches to retire Nomar Garciaparra, Ken Griffey Jr. and Manny Ramirez, the last with a swinging strikeout.
- 2009 Arizona released Tony Clark. And this time they meant it. Clark finished his career with a 112 OPS+ and 251 home-runs over his 15-year career, including 59 over five seasons with the D-backs. Most of those came in less than 400 PAs during the 2005 season, and his second stint - around a foray to San Diego was a lot less successful. Clark hit .194 with six homers in 74 games for Arizona over the 2008-09 campaigns. "You realize that when staff changes happen in the middle of the season that realistically the next adjustment that's going to be made are the players in uniform," Clark said.
