That was followed by a 19-second period of silence from the sellout crowd at Chase Field. Players from both teams wore ``Prescott Fire Dept.'' baseball caps during the game, with a large No. 19 behind home plate. During the weekend series, the Diamondbacks are wearing special black jerseys with a 19 patch.
The Diamondbacks have matched $100,000 in fans' donations and have pledged another $100,000 in matching funds.
Proceeds from Friday night's 50-50 raffle also go to charities aiding those affected by the fire and the deaths.
