The Ahwatukee Little League is getting the big league treatment by the Diamondbacks.

The ALL was one of the leagues selected to be part of the D-backs' Give Back Jersey Program, which was launched earlier this month, in which the D-backs have provided high-quality uniforms and caps to more than 22,000 youth baseball and softball players and their coaches throughout Arizona communities.

The royal treatment doesn't stop there.

D-backs players will stop by Randy Johnson Field (at Salt River Fields) to play ball with kids from the ALL at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

The players will help coach and even play part of the game alongside the Little Leaguers.

D-backs players expected to participate are Didi Gregorius, A.J. Pollock, Cody Ross, and Brad Ziegler.
