Pac-12 Notebook: Return of the Pac


Entering his 36th season as head coach of the Arizona Wildcats, Mike Candrea experienced something he’d never imagined: an empty Hillenbrand.

Hillenbrand’s raucous and roaring crowd is well known in the Pac-12 Conference. The Wildcats averaged 2,586 fans per game during the 2019 season, just second to Alabama (2,750) in Division I. When asked what it was like to play in an empty stadium, Candrea simply stated, “different.”

“It is what it is right now. I can’t wait for fans to get back here because it’s a big part of Arizona softball,” Candrea said.
