    Sad and great memories combined in the article.

    Jim Brock was a huge loss to the ASU baseball program. If I recall he had a winning tradition coaching junior college baseball in Arizona before becoming head coach at ASU.

    Brock also continued the winning legacy of Bobby Winkles. They are what the ASU baseball program is all about.

    When I moved to the area in 1981, my dad and I went looking for a baseball game. Coming from St. Louis, we had high standards. Sitting down to a game at Packard with some young kind named Barry Bonds seems right. Not to mention Jason Kendall or Oddibe McDowell. Though we also caught Phoenix Firebirds games at Phoenix Muni...until it got too hot in the summer, the Six-Pac caught our attention.

    I asked an acquaintance in the AD office to consider a "Lawn Chair" day at Phoenix Muni for him. We'll see.

    I think you're thinking of someone else besides Jason Kendall.

    Yeah, I guess I got my decades mixed up. But that's how long we sweated it out. :D

    In about 2007-ish, my dad and I went down to Packard and got tickets for the regional game vs. Coastal Carolina. We landed smack dab behind home plate. I don't know how much cheddar my dad plunked down, and I never asked. Carolina had a guy named "Costanza" and I ginned up the crowd with the chant of "George! George! George!" until he looked back at me and gave me the one-finger salute.

    EDIT: Now 15-0 after sweeping the Xavier Musketeers.

    Still undefeated. Winning the close games as will as blowing opponents out. Stay focused on the next opponent and don't look ahead to Oregon.

    How does ASU lose to a team that was 3-23? Horrible loss.

    Three losses in a row against below average competition. Limping in to the huge showdown against Oregon State

    That's just the state of Arizona sports in general. Maybe win a little to get everyone excited then BAM, fall off the face of the earth.

    Scuffling to say the least. Now comes Oregon State.
