TEMPE -- The Arizona State University softball team will open the 2013-14 season on Tuesday, Oct. 1 with the first practice of the year at Farrington Stadium. Fans are invited to join the team from 5-8 p.m. and admittance is free of charge.
The opportunity allows fans their first look at the newly constructed solar panels located above the stadium seats. The solar panels will shade up to 60 percent of Farrington Stadium as well as generate enough electricity for the university to declare the facility climate-neutral. The climate-neutral objective refers to Arizona State University’s overall goal of offsetting the amount of carbon released in to the atmosphere. It has become a university-wide goal to become a zero carbon footprint school.
Come support us as we officially kick off the 2013-14 season on Oct. 1 with our first practice at Farrington Stadium! http://t.co/yPaXgNA5cE— ASU Softball (@ASUSoftball) September 27, 2013
