University of Arizona Softball and Baseball
After Wayne and I were in Phoenix, Arizona, for Professional Baseball Spring Training, we tagged on a trip down to Tucson to watch some University of Arizona Women's Softball and Men's Baseball. Both fit in well with our Arizona sun-cation.
Wayne is our event planner. He tried to get tickets directly from the University of Arizona for Women's Softball, but the only thing available was general admission in the outfield. We've sat there before, and the view isn't the best.
We like to sit in reserved seats behind the plate if we can. Because UA and ASU (Arizona State University) are arch rivals, good tickets were hard to come by, but Chuck had two great seats for all three games. We really lucked out. Thanks Chuck.
The men were playing Oregon State University in their three-day tournament.
The men's stadium is off campus in a former Spring Training stadium. Hi Corbett Field is huge and general admission tickets get you great seats for only $10, $7 dollars for seniors and students. That has to be the bargain of our whole trip.
While we were in Tucson, we stayed at the Tucson Marriott University Park. We've stayed here many times before for various sporting events. We like it because it's within walking distance of campus sports venues and great restaurants. I just love college towns. They bring back such good memories. -- Margy
