Arizona State University Sun Devils Attract Large Crowds in Phoenix for Baseball

ASU Sun Devil Baseball in Phoenix
Judy Hedding

Arizona State University has an extensive sports program, and one of the most popular for spectators is men's baseball. The A.S.U. Sun Devils play at Phoenix Municipal Stadium in Central Phoenix. The stadium seats just under 9,000 and began hosting Arizona State University baseball games in the 2015 season when the Oakland A's moved their Spring Training home to Hohokam Stadium in Mesa.

ASU plays in the PAC-12, along with 11 other teams: Arizona, Cal, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State. One of the favorite games for spectators is always the game against ASU's perennial rival team, the Arizona Wildcats, who play at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

In 2016 ASU finished 5th in the conference with a 37-23 record, and a 16-14 record in the PAC12.

    Ten Things To Know Before You Go

    ASU Sun Devil baseball games are informal affairs, but there are a few things that might interest some people about a visit to this stadium. These comments are based on my visit to a game in 2015.

    1. There's no berm (grass) or centerfield seating at Phoenix Muni. Take a look at the seating chart. Unlike the Spring Training games that used to be held here, and with possibly a few exceptions, the bleachers in the far outfields are not sold.
    2. There is one smallish scoreboard at Phoenix Municipal Stadium, but it is visible from all seats in the stadium.
    3. The stadium entrance -- there's only one -- is a pretty long walk from the parking lot, possibly the equivalent of a few blocks. On the day I attended, I noticed that the handicapped parking for those without passes is also pretty far, and has quite significant uphill and downhill climbs for those in wheelchairs. Consider dropoff.
    1. The seats at Phoenix Muni from first base around to third base are all regular seats. All other seats in the stadium are bleachers, but the bleachers all have backs. Seat pads or blankets for comfort are an option.
    2. The bleachers and most of the lower level seats will not get any shade during day games, but none of the seats face directly into the afternoon sun. The third base bleachers are not angled toward the diamond, so you will be turning your head, toward the west into the afternoon sun, to watch the action on the diamond. The bleachers on the first base side have the sun behind them, but you can't see into the ASU dugout. You decide!
    3. There is a section the seats designated for ASU students in the bleachers, third base side. The visitors will typically sit behind the third base visitor dugout.
    4. The first row seats of the second level are the worst. People are walking in front of you on the concourse during the entire game. I wouldn't take a chance on the second row of the second level, either.
    5. There are no bullpens at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. Pitchers warm up during the game on mounds that are in foul territory on the first and third base lines.
    6. Concessions at Phoenix Muni are very ordinary. Hot dogs of various sizes, peanuts, nachos. There is a team shop where you can load up on tee shirts and foam fingers.
    7. There are no activities here for little kids, but there is a grassy picnic area (no view of the field) down the third base side where little kids can run around in grass to blow off some steam.
