Fans welcome Wildcats back with open arms

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - The Wildcat baseball team departed Omaha around 7:30 p.m Tucson time. When it finally landed at Tucson International Airport shortly before 9:30 p.m. the guys were no doubt exhausted after the day they just had.

The fans woke them up. 

Wildcat Nation was in full force when Arizona returned to Hi Corbett Field. 

A fitting welcome for a team who had exceeded expectation by leaps and bounds. A team that truly demonstrated what it meant to Bear Down.
