Plenty of Diamondbacks connections in the final. Kevin Ginkle of Arizona was the 22nd round pick by the Diamondbacks, and of course Connor Owings was the 34th round pick, as well as being the brother of Chris Owings. The final starts Monday at 4 pm Arizona time on the Worldwide Leader, with Tuesday's game at 5 and Wednesday's (if necessary) also at 5.
