Cool photo: Diamondbacks opening night batting order — literally

Not only are the Arizona Diamondbacks gritty, grindy, and all those other cliched baseball adjectives, it's clear they're pretty creative as well.

How do we know? Just check out this cool photo posted by the team's official Twitter account revealing Kirk Gibson's opening night batting order against Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals.

That's all nine starter's bats lined up in order (yes, a literal batting order), beginning with right fielder Gerardo Parra's GP8 all the way down to starting pitcher Ian Kennedy's red Louisville Slugger.

Did we say cool? I think we meant awesome. Well done by the D-Backs.
