Sun Devil Baseball Announces 2022 Schedule
PHOENIX – Sun Devil Baseball has officially released its 2022 schedule, as announced by head coach Willie Bloomquist and the Pac-12 Conference office.
The Sun Devils will play 55 total contests, including a 30-game conference slate and 25 non-conference matchups. ASU is slated to play 32 games in the confines of Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
The 2022 season will also feature the inaugural Pac-12 Baseball Tournament at the end of the regular season in partnership with the City of Scottsdale and The Arizona Sports & Entertainment Commission, hosted right in ASU's backyard at Scottsdale Stadium from May 25-29. The double-elimination tournament will be spread over five days at the Spring Training home of the San Francisco Giants. The top eight teams in the Conference standings at the conclusion of the regular season will earn berths in the Pac-12 Baseball Tournament. The champion will receive the Conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Season tickets for the 2022 season are now available for purchase starting at $99. Mini plans will go on sale to the public on December 9. Single game, group, suite, and Devil Deck tickets will be available the week of January 10. For more information or to purchase, please contact the Ticket Sales and Service team at 480-965-5812 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The current schedule is subject to any number of date and time changes due to the volatility of circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 crisis and in keeping with both local and national health recommendations and guidelines. The health and safety of student-athletes remain a top priority of Arizona State University and the Pac-12 Conference.
Additionally, official television selections have yet to be determined (though ASU is tentatively scheduled for 14 games to be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network), which could further affect the dates and times of this schedule.
Fans can get their first taste of the action on Sunday, Jan. 30 as Sun Devil Baseball hosts its Alumni Day and Fan Fest at Phoenix Municipal Stadium ahead of the team's opening weekend series. Additional information on Alumni Day and Fan Fest is forthcoming and will be announced in a separate release.

The three midweek games against Nevada and OSU are slated for 3 p.m./4 p.m./1 p.m. AZT first pitches, so fans should note the earlier-than-usual start times.
