Break a Bat, Plant a Tree is a partnership between the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and the Arizona Lottery. An important sustainability initiative for "D-backs Give Back", Break a Bat, Plant a Tree will provide desert-adapted shade trees in area parks.
Each time a D-backs pitcher breaks a bat of an opposing player during the 2015 season, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and Arizona Lottery will make a charitable contribution to provide shade trees in city parks in Phoenix and surrounding communities.
Total broken bats in 2015: 274
The 274 broken bats in 2015 allowed the Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Lottery and City of Phoenix to plant over 125 trees in City of Phoenix parks.
