FOX Sports Arizona’s Sanderson Ford KidKaster, 12 year-old Mackenzie got to experience the Arizona Diamondback game like ever before on July 26th .
To start off her day, Mackenzie got to interview one of her favorite Diamondbacks players, short stop Nick Ahmed. Mackenzie and Nick went back and forth about baseball and common interests!
Once her interview with Nick was over, she headed up to the FOX Sports Arizona pregame set where she sat down with Jody Jackson to do a segment on Diamondbacks Live!
Taking in all of the experiences so far, Mackenzie then went up to the PA booth where she got the opportunity to announce the Diamondbacks batting lineup in the 2nd inning. Although she could not spark the Diamondback offense, she had a blast being able to say the batters names for the whole stadium to hear.
At the top of the 3rd inning, Mackenzie found herself sitting next to Bob Brenly and Steve Berthiaume in the FOX Sports Arizona broadcast booth where they discussed her favorite hobbies and her favorite food-Bacon.
To finish off the day, Mackenzie got to go inside the FOX Sports Arizona production truck where she got a behind the scenes look and operated the switchboard. She ended her day with her family while watching the Diamondbacks defeat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-0.
