Time is running out to cheer on Sun Devils

April 18, 2012

Column by Nick Prete, ASU News

With only two weeks left of school and stressing out over finals, summer, and housing, there is one solid way to relax and have fun before school gets out. That is, of course, to cheer on your Sun Devil athletic teams before their season comes to an end. Unfortunately, your time is running out! There are only 13 games left at home this year and they are all baseball or softball games versus Pac-12 opponents! With every game for the teams being crucial to their end of the year standings, they need these wins more than ever. That's where the fans come in, being a big part of the atmosphere at Packard and Farrington stadiums. 

There's a pretty high chance for the two Sun Devil teams to win out these home games. Baseball plays Utah and Washington, which are both below ASU in the Pac-12 rankings. However, they still have one rematch against rival UofA here at home, which will be sure to keep every fan on the edge of their seat. Therefore, if you missed the first heated matchup between these two, you still have another chance to be there when the Devils take on the Cats. 

Softball plays Stanford and Utah which are both near the bottom of the rankings. So if you want to go see the Devils dominate, softball is where to go. Don't think those games will be blow outs though because while their upcoming home opponents may be low in the conference rankings, the Pac-12 is one of the most dominant conferences in the nation. In the latest rankings there were seven Pac-12 schools in the top 25 softball teams in the country, the most of any conference this year.

The Sun Devils need your help and you can enjoy the beautiful weather while you're out there cheering them on. Make sure to get out there! (Also, if neither baseball nor softball is really your thing, there's also a spring football game you can hit up this weekend instead.)
