PHOENIX -- Coyotes captain Shane Doan served as a guest analyst for FOX Sports Arizona on Saturday night as the network broadcast the Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Atlanta Braves baseball game from Chase Field.

It was the second time Doan, a self-proclaimed "fantasy baseball geek," has filled this role for the network; he also did so last season.

As part of his gig, Doan chatted with FOX Sports Arizona host Todd Walsh during the pre- and post-game shows. He also interviewed D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt in the dugout before the game, and mingled with D-backs manager Kirk Gibson, and players Miguel Montero, Josh Collmenter and Cody Ross. Before leaving the dugout, Doan signed autographs for fans - mostly on baseballs, which he tossed back to fans after signing them.

During the game, which lasted 11 innings and 3 1/2 hours, Doan posted observations and interacted with fans via the Diamondbacks Twitter feed.

Arizona rallied three times to beat Atlanta 4-3.
