PHOENIX -- Nearly 92 years after a major league game was first broadcast on radio, the Arizona Diamondbacks became the first big-league team to have its game broadcast in Navajo.

Dan Arnold and George LaFrance had the play-by-play call of Saturday night's game against the Brewers on KTNN, a Navajo-language AM station broadcasting from Window Rock in northern Arizona.

Though the team said Saturday's game was the first baseball game to be broadcast in Navajo, such broadcasts are not new to Phoenix area professional teams. KTNN broadcast Phoenix Suns games in Navajo during the 1990s.
