Tucson Sidewinders return home
Tucson, AZ - The Tucson Sidewinders, current owners of a 38-32 record, return home on Tuesday, June 22, 2004 to host the Northern Division Edmonton Trappers (Montreal Expos) and Salt Lake Stingers (Anaheim Angels). The Trappers will visit Tucson for the last time, as the team will be moved to Round Rock, TX following the 2004 season. The Sidewinders are currently 3-4 on their road trip to Edmonton and Salt Lake. The home stand is highlighted by back-to-back giveaways of Diamondback Hats on Saturday, June 26th, and Diamondback Posters on Sunday, June 27th. Other highlights of the home stand include two Toro's Tuesday's, the always popular Thirsty Thursday, and a fun Fiesta Friday on June 25th.
