Triple-A Baseball Returns to Tucson for Four More Days
It was announced today by the MountainStar Sports Group that Triple-A Baseball will return to Tucson for four more days. The El Paso Chihuahuas (San Diego Padres) and formerly the Tucson Padres, will play the Reno Aces (Arizona Diamondbacks) at Kino Stadium on April 11 - 14. Pat Murphy will manage the Chihuahuas; Phil Nevin the Reno Aces. The Chihuahuas begin their inaugural Pacific Coast League season on the road with eight road games - Reno (4/3 - 6) and Tacoma (4/7 - 10).
Alan Ledford, President of MountainStar Sports Group, said "After meeting with the City of El Paso Project Manager, MountainStar Sports Group has elected to move the home opening day for the El Paso Chihuahuas in the new downtown ballpark to Monday, April 28th".
Ledford said that the adjustment of the home opening date will allow construction crews the critical time required to prepare the ballpark for "a great experience" on April 28th. Public safety components, concession spaces, and state-of-the-art amenities will be finalized during this time.
Tickets will go on sale at Kino Stadium on Monday, March 3. You can also call (520) 434-1367 for more information after that date. Game day details will be finalized over the next few weeks.
