PHOENIX — Team officials announced they will host the 16th Annual Arizona Diamondbacks Fan Fest 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday at Chase Field, 401 E. Jefferson St., Phoenix.

Players and alums scheduled to sign autographs include Starling Marte, Ketel Marte, Nick Ahmed, Archie Bradley, David Peralta, Luis Gonzalez and Randy Johnson, among others.

The event will offer young fans a bunch of fun opportunities this year, according to team officials.

The fan-favorite D-backs Yard Sale returns this season to benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.

The sale will take place just inside the gates at the Gila River Hotels & Casinos Plaza.
