Dean Boone takes the field

Boone First PitchIn February, Major League Baseball announced it was partnering with ASU on a zero waste initiative that took place during spring training. In April, the Diamondbacks called on School of Sustainability Dean Christopher Boone to partner with them on a special Earth Day project. Our fearless dean agreed to throw out the first pitch at the Sunday afternoon game. The official video shows the pitch was juuuust a bit outside, but we do like to think outside the box here at ASU. Many School of Sustainability alumni and staff were in attendance at the game to support the Diamondbacks and Dean Boone. View our photo album from the event.
