Baseball holds Territorial Cup
The Arizona State University baseball team, in conjunction with the Cory Hahn Foundation, is hosting its second "Pass The Bucket Night" on Wednesday, May 16 at Packard Stadium to help raise money and awareness for Cory and his family. First pitch for the game against the University of Arizona is set for 6:30 p.m.
This is also the second part of the five-game State Farm Territorial Cup Series between the two schools. The Sun Devils trailed by three heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, but rallied for seven runs in the frame to take a 12-8 win over then-No. 16 Arizona in the teams' last meeting on April 17 at Packard Stadium. ASU travels to Tucson, Ariz., May 25-27 to finish the State Farm Territorial Cup Series with a three-game conference tilt against the Wildcats.
Volunteers, wearing gray ASU jerseys, will be stationed at every section and will be passing around the donation buckets during the fourth inning. The first "Pass The Bucket Night" took place on April 17 against Arizona and fans raised more than $4,000 for Cory and his family.
The Sun Devils have a 10-game home winning streak and are 20-5 at Packard this season, and secured their 50th straight 30-win season over the weekend after sweeping Gonzaga in a three-game non-conference road series. They are ranked in the top 20 in three polls, including 16th in Collegiate Baseball, and are tied for fourth in the Pac-12, just three games out of first.
This is the first of the final four home games of the 2012 baseball season. The Sun Devils host Washington for a three-game Pac-12 series over the weekend, with the contest on Saturday, May 19 being televised live by Fox Sports Arizona. The games on Friday, May 18 and Saturday will begin at 6:30 p.m., with the Sunday, May 20 game starting at 12:30 p.m.
The Sun Devil Sports Network on The Fan AM 1060 will broadcast all four games and Fox Sports Arizona will webcast Friday and Sunday's game online at FoxSportsArizona.com.
