PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have announced that they are establishing a fund of at least $1 million for game day staffers who are affected by the postponement of games in Major League Baseball.

“Our game day staff is part of our family and we want to make sure that we take care of them and support them during these challenging economic times,” said D-backs Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick. “When times are tough, that is when organizations like ours need to step up and I’m proud of all 30 teams who are motivated by a desire to help others in our baseball community.”

“There are personal relationships that exist between our game day staff and all of us who work at the D-backs and it is important that they know we are here for them,” said President & CEO Derrick Hall. “When baseball returns, so will these faces that our fans have come to know and love, as these are the people who are responsible for the incredible fan experience at Chase Field.”

Details on the implementation of this initiative will be provided directly to game day staff.
