Arizona State University is talking with Phoenix officials about
moving its baseball program to a city-owned facility.
Discussions to share
a new Chicago Cubs stadium in Mesa fell apart last week.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said
ASU President Michael Crow called him shortly after those talks ended.
ASU is trying to find a new baseball venue to replace Packard Stadium.
Possible available sites include Phoenix Municipal Stadium, which is less than four miles from campus.
The stadium is the spring training home of the Oakland Athletics and was home to the San Francisco Giants’ Triple A team, the Phoenix Firebirds, for a number of years.
