The D-backs Pal Video follows Malachi, a boy with autism and his family as they enjoy a Major League Baseball game. Watch with your family to show your kiddos what to expect, talk about any concerns, and plan around any potential sensory sensitivities.


Plan with 'Insider Tips'

Prepare best by knowing when, where and how to go.

Sensory Scale uses 1 – 10 scoring, with 10 being maximum sensory input.

How loud
How much walking
How many people
How many hours to stay

If you’re tired of sitting, check out The Sandlot play area near Section 332. Details and age / height limits can be found on the D-backs website.

Feel free to yell when your D-backs make a great play with the bat or in the field.

If your kiddo likes numbers and staying organized, they might have fun keeping score of the game. Visit Guest Relations for a paper scorecard and pencil.

Compared with other sporting events, baseball tends to be a slower pace and somewhat quieter and more relaxed.

The D-backs offer value item pricing on several food and drink options, plus certain sealed beverages and food items can be brought in. Check the D-backs website for details.

The season starts in early April. Check back in March for discounts to less crowded, family-friendly games.
