Yep.

Outright with the series win over UW.

They've had a really good year. Manny expected them to fall back, especially with UCLA and UW series to close and they won both

I try and get to a game with my daughter every year. They area blast.

Last year with COVID we went as a family to the regional final, but unfortunately ASU got bounced.

Would love to go again this year. ASU will have to be a host site.

Would love to see them in line for a super regional if they advance, but not sure if facilities come into play with that

ASU absolutely has the facilities to host a Super regional

Wasn't sure on capacities. Farrington doesn't feel huge and some of the other schools look much larger then they actually are.

Just looked it up and capacity is in line with most major programs, save a few outliers like Alabama.

2019 I took my daughter to their open practice today included a facilities tour - they've finished the hitting area and some other detail since then, but were good on the interior stuff

Fun day at Farrington.

Really well rounded team.

Had a couple down moments, but overcame them and they more they see a team the better they play them

Onto the super regionals

My little niece will be joining this loaded squad. Super pumped to be able to make a few games.

Lost in 11.

Built a 3-0 lead with 3 solo shots. Gave it back with a 2 run HR in the 6th and a solo shot in the 7th.

Had multiple opportunities to win. Runners at 2nd with 1 out, runner at 3rd, bases loaded - just couldn't convert

Northwestern has a couple chances as well, but robbed at the fence and then a great defensive effort by 3B to get a double play

Ultimately, ASU made some mistakes that bit them

Northwestern pitcher thew a great game, wicked change up and kept ASU off balance. Travelled in from IL and pitched all 11 on a 100 degree start

Home plate ump was painful and I hope she is off home tomorrow

Game went 4 hours and maybe broke my wife
