No. 8 Softball Hosts Cal Poly For A Four-Game Series This Weekend
March 25, 2010
TEMPE, Ariz. - The Sun Devil Softball squad (27-4 overall) will return home yet again to the friendly confines of Farrington Stadium as they set to host one last non-conference series before opening their grueling Pac-10 schedule. The Sun Devils will face the Cal Poly Mustangs this Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Tempe. Game time on Friday will be 7 p.m. followed with a double header at 4 and 7 p.m. on Saturday while capping the weekend with a 1 p.m. game on Sunday.
ASU is hoping to snap a 30 year record as Cal Poly rolls into town this weekend looking to protect their flawless record against the Sun Devils as they hold a 2-0 record against ASU with both coming in 1980.
The Sun Devils remain home next weekend for three of the biggest game of the season as they set to host the second-ranked Arizona Wildcats in their annual ‘Duel In the Desert’. This one is for a lot of the marbles folks, so get your tickets quick as Farrington is nearly sold out already.
