Chihuahuas meet the media ahead of Opening Day

News

The Moment is here! The El Paso Chihuahuas open the 2019 All-Star Season against the Las Vegas Aviators (Oakland A’s affiliate) on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 7:05 p.m., kicking off a five-game homestand!

The first 3,000 guests in attendance with paid admission will receive a 2019 rally towel. Opening Day will also include the first Thrifty Thursday of the season presented by Speaking Rock Entertainment Center. The offerings consist of $2 hot dogs, $2 12oz beer, $2 12oz margaritas and $2 24oz sodas for 2.5 hours after gates open.

Along with Thrifty Thursday, L&F Distributors (the Budweiser distributor in El Paso) and the El Paso Chihuahuas are once again partnering to deliver Day Fresh Budweiser to Southwest University Park for Opening Day!

To kickoff the All-Star Season, the El Paso Chihuahuas Foundation 50/50 Raffle jackpot will begin at $5,000. Guests will have the opportunity purchase 50/50 raffle tickets when ballpark gates open until the end of the seventh inning. The randomly selected winner will receive half of the jackpot total from the game’s raffle ticket sales and the other half will benefit the El Paso Chihuahuas Foundation which supports numerous charities and non-profits in the local community.

Rounding out the night’s festivities is a salute to our military, veterans and first responders with Thank You Thursday presented by Prudential.

The homestand also includes a special guest appearance by Dwier Brown from the movie “Field of Dreams” on Friday, April 5 with postgame catch on the field, a Fireworks Spectacular on Saturday and Curious George appearance on Sunday! The series concludes on Monday with a Mini Bat giveaway presented by Southwest University, featuring a full-color picture of Southwest University Park, that will be handed out to guests (April 8) upon entry.

Tickets are still available for Opening Day and great seats remain for the homestand! Tickets are available starting at $5.  Purchasers who buy in advance will enjoy savings ranging from $2.00 – $3.00 per ticket on reserved seating versus purchasing on the day of the game. 

Tickets can be purchased at the Southwest University Park box offices, online at epchihuahuas.com or by calling (915) 533-BASE. The Durango & Santa Fe Box Offices will be open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and 30 minutes postgame on gamedays.
