Some of the biggest crowds of the season are expected this weekend at Hi Corbett Field as Arizona takes on Arizona State University in a three-game series beginning May 25 that could lead to a Pac-12 title and an NCAA Regional host selection for the Wildcats. 

Fans are encouraged to avoid lines by using the purchase and print option for tickets or to purchase tickets at the McKale Memorial Center before Friday. Prices for the UA-ASU series are $13 and $15.

Arizona (36-16, 18-9) will begin its final regular season series in second place in the Pac-12 and within one game of first-place Oregon. The Ducks will finish on the road at Oregon State, while Arizona will host Arizona State on Friday and May 26 at 6 p.m. and May 27 at noon.

The three-game series will feature bonus activities each day with a post-game fireworks show on Friday. Arrive early on Saturday to honor Wildcat seniors, including coach Andy Lopez's son Michael, during a pre-game ceremony, and watch men's basketball coach Sean Miller throw out the first pitch. On Sunday, fans will get 50 percent off of select concession items.

Also on Sunday, the NCAA baseball committee will announce its 16 regional host sites, and the 13th-ranked Arizona hopes to be chosen. If Arizona is selected, regional tickets will go on sale online on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Season ticket holders have until 3 p.m. on May 29 to purchase their seats for the Regional; after 6 p.m., any remaining reserved tickets will go on sale to the general public online.
