Photos from Phillies-Diamondbacks 4/24/10

Before the game began, the Diamondbacks unveiled their newest addition to the ballpark - the retired numbers of Jackie Robinson situated above the right field bleachers, with plenty of room for future players to be retired there as well. (Randy Johnson's #51, anyone? Or maybe Mark Grace's #17?)
Here's a close-up view of the new numbers:
The other brand new addition to Chase Field is UPTOWN, the "Mannywood" of the Diamondbacks for right fielder Justin Upton! On Saturday, the DBacks' red-clad fans were there in force:
Also on Saturday, it was the APS Green Series, where the Diamondbacks organization powered the stadium with 100% green energy. In tribute to their super-powered counterparts, the Incredibles, the inflatable Renewables stood guard over right field as well from a perch high above the field:
Out in left field, where I sat, the sporting world's greatest mascot, D. Baxter, came out to visit! You can't tell from this photo, but he was hugging a little kid here. In another photo I have, he's mocking a Phillies fan about four rows away from me.
I was lucky to grab this shot of the moonrise over Chase Field with all the light banks in my way, but luckily, I set the camera's exposure correctly!
