The city of Phoenix and Arizona State University announced that Sun Devil baseball will begin playing at Phoenix Municipal Stadium at the start of the 2015 season.

Phoenix Muni, which has been the Spring Training home of the Oakland A’s since 1982, has a seating capacity of nearly 8,000 and is located in Papago Park, just over 2 miles from ASU’s Tempe campus. The Sun Devils played a number of baseball games at the stadium in the 1960s and ‘70s, including postseasons and high profile series that often broke attendance records.

On Feb. 6, the Phoenix City Council unanimously approved the 25-year lease agreement that allows the team to have priority use of the stadium. ASU will also cover all operating expenses and capital improvements to the facility under the revenue-sharing agreement.
