Major League legend Luis Gonzalez shares love of baseball, opening day

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- It's one of Gonzo's favorite days of the year -- the day his beloved Arizona Diamondbacks take the field for their home opener.

A Major League legend and perennial favorite of D-backs fans, Luis Gonzalez (Who can forget that bloop single to left field that won Arizona its first World Series in 2001!) retired in August 2009 and is now part of the Diamondbacks front office.

Bat in hand and clear ready for an exciting year, Gonzo checked in with Scott Pasmore Friday morning, just hours before the first pitch of the season at Chase Field.
