100 Degree Contest

First 100-Degree Day for 2012

Win D-Backs tickets, whoever can guess the first 100 degree day wins. It is as simple as that, be the first to post that date to our Facebook page. The earliest we’ve ever hit 100 was 1988, if you guessed March 26th you would have one. That means it is possible to win D-Back tickets as early as this week, so get your posts in now.

The date the temperature first hits 100 at the official National Weather Service thermometer at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
