Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day when you get together with the family, stuff your face with horrendous amounts of food, and get into fights about politics. But there is an alternative. For if you want to slink away, or are just slumped on the sofa with your phone, Fox Sports Arizona have you covered. There were many reasons for Arizona Diamondbacks fans to be thankful this year. A National League Wild Card win and one of the most exciting games in team history. The NL's Manager of the Year. An NL MVP finalist. 24 more wins than 2016. 13-game winning streak. A four-home-run game. 44 comeback victories. And, a postseason appearance for the first time in six years just to name a few.
They’ll all be covered tomorrow, where there will be a Thanksgiving menu to feast on, as Fox Sports Arizona presents a 15-hour D-backs programming marathon beginning at 9 am, and running all day through to midnight. It features some of the best 2017 had to offer, including five of the season's top games, the debut of a season review show called "#OurSeason: D-backs 2017" and encore presentations of the most popular D-backs shows produced by the network's Original Programming department.
