El Paso Baseball Opening Day

By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

September 6, 2013

As construction continues on their downtown baseball stadium, El Paso residents finally can mark their calendars for the start of next season. The Pacific Coast League released its 2014 schedule, and Opening Day for El Paso’s new Triple-A baseball team is April 11. The date will mark a momentous occasion for El Pasoans, who last November overwhelmingly voted to increase the city’s hotel tax in order to fund the new ballpark. Team owner MountainStar Sports Group recently held a fan vote to name the new franchise, and an unveiling is expected within the next month.

With 72 home games against teams from Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Salt Lake City, the baseball team and stadium is expected to be a financial boon for downtown El Paso. The lucrative economic impact is one of the primary reasons taxpayers were so determined to fund the ballpark, along with a multipurpose arena, museums, and other parks & rec facilities. Given the city’s bright future, it’s all good in El Paso.
