Including Tuesday night's affair in Minnesota, the Arizona Diamondbacks have been around for 17 All-Star Games.

Though their tradition in the game is not at all comparable to teams that have been around longer, they have certainly had a solid presence in the Midsummer Classic over the years.

Below is a look at how the team's representatives have performed, by the numbers:


The Diamondbacks have yet to have a player hit a home run in an All-Star Game.


The Diamondbacks have sent an All-Star from every position on the field save for one: shortstop.


D-backs hitters have knocked in three All-Star runs, with Steve Finley (2000), Damian Miller (2002) and Luis Gonzalez (2005) each collecting an RBI.

Devon White was the first All-Star in Diamondbacks history, and the outfielder represented the team well with three hits in the 1998 game.


Diamondbacks have gone 12-for-29 in All-Star Games for a combined average of .414.


The Diamondbacks have sent seven pitchers to the All-Star Game.


Of every player the D-backs have sent to the All-Star Game, eight have returned to at least one more while still with Arizona.


A total of 20 different players have appeared in an All-Star Game in a D-backs uniform.


Byung-Hyun Kim appeared in the 2002 All-Star Game, allowing two runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning for an ERA of 54.00.


Paul Goldschmidt is the first D-back to start the game since Luis Gonzalez did so in 2001. Including Goldschmidt, seven times has a D-back been on the field when the game began.
