Auburn's Casey Myers to be Inducted into Arizona State Hall of Fame

Newly-returned Auburn volunteer assistant coach Casey Myers will be inducted into the Arizona State Athletic Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Tempe this weekend.

Myers, one of three family members on the Tiger coaching staff along with brother Corey and father Clint, rejoined the AU program this summer after a single season as the Major League Staff Coordinator with Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres.

He also served as the Tigers' Volunteer Assistant Coach in 2014, prior to accepting the position with the Padres.

Myers was a catcher on the Sun Devil baseball team from 1998-2001, earning all-American honors three times including first-team honors in 2000 and 2001. Myers was the Pac-10's Player of the Year in each of those same two seasons, becoming just the third player in conference history to earn the award in consecutive campaigns.

Myers was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the ninth round of the 2001 draft and spent eight seasons in the Minor League system.

Joining Myers in the ASU Class of 2016 is former Sun Devil softballer Phelan Wright. Wright ended her Sun Devil career in 2004 with her name in the top-ten of three different program statistical categories, including seventh in home runs and nine in RBI at that point. Wright three times earned all-American honors of her own, including a first-team nod in '02.
