El Paso, TX (KTSM) — El Paso's recent rainfall has dampened construction on the Triple-A Baseball Stadium but the city's engineer said -- opening day will take place as scheduled.
Construction crews have been working around the clock to get the ballpark off the ground. Beyond the mounds of dirt and piles of steel, the team's dugout is beginning to take shape as well as home field.
The Triple-A baseball team's manager said the ball park will feel like a major league stadium for a minor league team.
"It's going to be major league style. But if you took the best amount of seats from a major league ballpark and put them in a minor league ballpark, that is what this is going to offer; every seat is going to be the action,” Brad Taylor, the Triple-A General Manager said.
"Progress is going well, the weather has improved; thank God. It has cost us a couple of weeks and we'll have to catch up but we're continuing to work towards that,” Alan Shubert, the City Project Manager explained,” Alan Shubert, the City Project Manager explained.
