"...will always have a place in the history of Arizona and that the Diamondbacks are deeply saddened by her loss."
“The way in which she helped others and gave back to the world around her embodied many of the core values of our organization and our players will undoubtedly be proud to wear her name on their sleeves.”
- Both quotes from Derrick Hall on Kayla Mueller
The Arizona Diamondbacks will wear a black patch with "KAYLA" on it in spring training games Tuesday through Sunday in memory of Kayla Mueller, the young Arizona woman who died in captivity in Syria.
The Diamondbacks this week will wear a black patch with "KAYLA" written on the sleeve in honor of Prescott, Ariz., resident Kayla Mueller.
A human rights activist, Mueller died while being held by Islamic State militants in Syria last month.
Kayla Mueller, a 26-year-old humanitarian aid worker who was killed while in captivity in Syria, was a native of Arizona. For a week’s worth of spring training games, the Diamondbacks will honor her memory by wearing a black patch bearing her name.
