June 5, 1998
TEMPE, Ariz. - ASU Athletics is sponsoring a Welcome Home Celebration for the Sun Devil baseball team on Sunday, June 7 beginning at 3 p.m. at Packard Stadium.
No admission will be charged and parking is free to the public.
Fans may greet Head Coach Pat Murphy and the rest of the Sun Devils while celebrating the team's appearance in the national championship game. Several prizes - including official Sun Devil baseball merchandise and pairs of 1999 ASU baseball season tickets - will be given out and concession stands will be open.
Fans are encouraged to bring the whole family out to Packard Stadium. Sparky Sun Devil and the ASU cheerleaders will be on hand and kids can get their faces painted as they wait for the Sun Devils to arrive. The team will be coming directly from Sky Harbor Airport to Packard Stadium, so those in attendance will be the very first to congratulate the team.
KMVP's Jeff Munn will serve as master of ceremonies. The welcome home program will feature comments from Head Coach Pat Murphy and several players, including Sun Devil seniors Rudy Arguelles, Brian Heintzelman, Aaron Kramer, Richy Leon and Mikel Moreno.
