PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks' improbable run to the World Series is making a big impact in a way that you may not have realized.

Every home playoff game that the D-backs hosted came with a 50/50 raffle for fans where half the money went back into the"D-backs Give-Back" fund. Because the team hosted seven games during their World Series run, they were able to raise an extra $750,000 for their charitable fund.The money raised in the raffle goes toward funding youth baseball and softball tournaments like the Chase Your Dream High School Baseball Classic that runs through Saturday in the Southwest Valley.

ABC15 In The Community: The D-backs Give-Back money also goes toward field improvements, grants for schools, team equipment, and many other good causes.
