PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks pitcher Brad Ziegler will be in Prescott later today along with Derrick Hall and Don Brandt from APS to dedicate a youth baseball field.

Ziegler stopped by 3TV Friday morning to have a catcher with Scott Pasmore and talk about the field.

It will be the 34th field as part of the Diamonds Back Field Building Program that began in 2000.

The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation has built or refurbished 34 baseball fields representing a community investment of more than $10 million.

With support from APS, and charitable contributions from D-backs players, the program has allowed children from across the state to play baseball and softball at quality facilities.

The fields generally feature new lights, a branded electronic scoreboard, new fencing and backstops, new irrigation and new grass and dirt with additional support provided by local contractors and businesses.
