The Diamondbacks are competing with other MLB teams for a $200,000 Pepsi Refresh grant. Their idea is to fund the "Batter up with Buddies" project and match Arizona's youth with developmental disabilities into friendships with student volunteers. The grant will also connect other schools across Arizona with the Diamondbacks including games at Chase Field and possibly meeting the players.
