PHOENIX – The masked man in the red-and-black cape and red-and-black Arizona Diamondbacks shirt is everywhere.
His likeness is found on billboards and bus stops ad signs. The real-life human version charges around Chase Field, popping up in the broadcast booth for appearances or on the field with the team’s official mascot, D-Baxter. Forbidden from speaking – in the tradition of old-school Mexican lucha libre performers – the D-backs Luchador (on Twitter @DbacksLuchador) has appeared in the press box messing with media members, dancing in between innings at the stadium, even on TVs in homes throughout the area.
