SOLO ACT: The ARIZONA REPUBLIC's Metcalfe notes the ASU baseball team will soon be the "sole tenant at 8,000-seat Phoenix Municipal Stadium, where it played 137 games from 1964-74." ASU will "leave 4,000-seat Packard Stadium, its home since 1974, after next season and move 2.5 miles northwest to a stadium that is 10 years older." Under terms of a 25-year lease, ASU will receive the first $1.1M annually "from tickets, net concessions and parking before paying rent, which is capped at $300,000." ASU is "responsible for maintenance and operating expenses and receives 50 percent of revenue from other events at the stadium" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 4/24).
