Following a nearly complete historic inaugural campaign, the El Paso Chihuahuas announced today that they will open the 2015 season at home on April 9 versus the Tacoma Rainiers (Seattle Mariners) at Southwest University Park.
Opening Night kicks off 16 games in April (two eight-game homestands). May is the lightest month of the 72-game schedule with 11 contests. The team will play 14 games in June and 12 in July, and close their home campaign with 17 games in August. The final home game of the regular season will be on Sunday, August 30.
The Chihuahuas will host the Gildan Triple-A Baseball National Championship Game on September 22.
The team will play on Mother’s Day (May 10), Father’s Day (June 21) and the three games leading up to the Fourth of July (July 1-3). The Chihuahuas will take a break from play, July 13-15, for the Triple-A All-Star game.
“The 2015 season will see a full slate of 72 home games plus the Gildan Triple-A Baseball National Championship Game,” said general manager Brad Taylor. “We are thrilled with the overwhelming response to Chihuahuas baseball in our inaugural season. We are already working on new ideas, promotions and continued improvement for everyone that visits Southwest University Park in 2015.”
As members of the Pacific Coast League’s Southern Division, the Chihuahuas will face Albuquerque, Fresno, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Salt Lake City and Tacoma, twice. The Iowa Cubs (May 29-June 1), Omaha Storm Chasers (June 2-5), and the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (Aug. 23-26) will make their first-ever visits to the Sun City.
Since Opening Night on April 28th, the Chihuahuas have welcomed more than half a million guests through the Southwest University Park gates, selling out 43 of 62 games. The Chihuahuas look to build on that success heading into the 2015 season.
Fans can guarantee their seats by purchasing a 2015 Season Seat Package. Fans are also encouraged to book their groups and hospitality areas prior to the season.
