On Sunday afternoon, Mike Candrea recorded his 1,500th career victory as the Arizona Wildcats’ head softball coach.
Immediately after the game, Candrea got the ice water bath, and there was a presentation in the Hillenbrand Stadium infield that included a tribute video to the school’s most legendary coach.
You can watch all of that here:
