Diamondbacks introduce new Luchador mascot

Posted:

(CBS) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have introduced the D-backs Luchador as an official mascot of the team.

The popularity of last year's Lucha Libre mask, which was later followed by a Lucha Libre match, inspired the creation of the Luchador character and this year the mascot features a new look.

In addition, the D-backs will give away 20,000 Luchador masks, courtesy of Circle K and Univision Arizona, as fans enter Chase Field next Saturday, July 27.

The D-backs Luchador speaks both fluent Spanish and English and represents a character that you would find at a Lucha Libre match.

The D-backs Luchador wrestles with Club Deportivo Coliseo and can be found revving up the crowd at select D-backs games.

Fans can follow the Luchador on Twitter @DbacksLuchador and can find more information about the character at www.dbacks.com/luchador orwww.losdbacks.com/luchador.

This season, the D-backs will give away 20,000 Luchador masks, courtesy of Circle K and Univision Arizona, (July 27) and 5,000 Luchador capes, courtesy of Chevrolet, for kids only (Sept. 15).

Last season the team gave away their first D-backs Lucha Libre mask and featured a Lucha Libre match along the Gila River Casinos Plaza prior to the game. In addition, the D-backs will host Hispanic Heritage Day, presented by Budweiser, on Sept. 14 that will feature a Street Festival, presented by APS, and will give away 20,000 Miguel Montero bobbleheads, courtesy of Subway.

At the beginning of the season, the D-backs introduced the Sonoran Dog, a Hermosillo tradition, which features a hot dog wrapped in mesquite-smoked bacon that is grilled, and then topped with pico de gallo, ranch-style beans and a mayo drizzle.

The hot dog is available at all Red Hot Grill locations at Chase Field for $7. Fans can also get the Sonoran Dog as part of a special Sonoran Dog Package, El Pa'quetellenes, for only $15 that includes an Outfield Reserve ticket, Sonoran-style hot dog, 24 ounce Pepsi and a coupon for a free cookie from SUBWAY® Restaurants.

Fans also have the option to purchase the package for $19 that includes a draft beer instead of a 24 ounce Pepsi.

Tickets for the July 27 game are available at the Chase Field Box Office, by calling 602.514.8400 or online at www.dbacks.com.
