The Arizona Diamondbacks brought back an old tradition this season with a bullpen cart. One problem: None of the Diamondbacks wanted to use it.
Brad Ziegler changed that when he entered the game against the San Francisco Giants in the seventh inning Thursday night, drawing cheers from the hometown fans.

Ziegler, Arizona’s one-time closer, returned to the team at the trade deadline in a deal with the Miami Marlins.
The Diamondbacks lost 8-1 to the Giants. Still was great to see the Bullpen cart in action.
