Saturday night's Arizona Diamondbacks game was both sad & special for the fans in attendance. The crowd learned of Arizona Sen. John McCain passing as the game was being played and the Diamondbacks gave a touching tribute to the senator. The team paused just before the 5th inning began to honor McCain on the Jumbotron.
It was a standing ovation following news of the senator's death. and Arizona Diamondbacks President & CEO gave a touching tribute via Twitter:
“John McCain has always been a member of the D-backs’ family and was one of this team’s biggest fans since day one. He was in attendance at the expansion draft, World Series & countless other games, remaining a fan through thick & thin."
