D-backs Luchador

The D-backs Luchador first appeared at Chase Field in June 2012, the same year that the team conducted their first Lucha Libre mask giveaway.

Lucha Libre -- literally translated as "free fighting" -- has a long, proud history within the Hispanic culture and is often said to be the second most popular sport, ranking only behind soccer.

Soon after his first sighting, the D-backs Luchador quickly became a recognizable presence throughout the ballpark, leading the team to make him a formal character in the 2013 season. Possessed with high-flying wrestling skills and a "good-guy" persona, the D-backs Luchador is admired by children and adults alike.
