Next week House of Sparky will begin our "#SunDevilMoments" tournament, with the 16 best moments from the athletic season. This week we will randomly introduce all 16 moments, then reveal our seedings and match-ups next week, where you, the reader, will vote on what was the ASU athletics Moment of the Year.

On February 13, ASU baseball ushered in a new era. The Sun Devils moved away from historic Packard Stadium into the friendlier confines of Phoenix Municipal Stadium. Not only was February 13 the first time the Sun Devils played a game at Phoenix Muni, it was the first game for new head coach Tracy Smith in maroon and gold.

The Sun Devils began the 2015 season hosting No. 5 Oklahoma State and former ASU assistant coach Josh Holliday. ASU struck first in the bottom of the fourth inning with an RBI single from Colby Woodmansee and an RBI double from Dalton Dinatale to jump out to a 2-0 lead.

The Cowboys answered with two runs in the top of the fifth and took a 3-2 lead the next inning when Kevin Bradley singled home Connor Costello.

That lead held until the bottom of the eighth when ASU tied the game at three on a Jordan Aboites RBI double. Ryan Burr threw a scoreless ninth and 10th frame and Woodmansee led off the bottom of the 10th with the game tied. On a 1-2 count, Woodmansee smashed a solo home run to left field to give ASU a 4-3 victory.

That game began a trend that the Sun Devils continued all season. ASU posted six walk-off victories this season and found themselves in tight contests all season.

Woody's walk off is one of two moments from the ASU baseball team in our 16-moment bracket. Our writers saw it as the No. 4 moment in ASU athletics this year, however it is up to the fans to see how far Woody's walk-off can go in the tournament.
