Late Gadsden teen honored at Chihuahuas game, memorial services set

News

Three days after he was hit and killed in front of his Berino home, the community is continuing to remember Gadsden High School student Beto Romero.

The El Paso Chihuahuas honored the baseball player with a moment of silence before their matchup against Las Vegas Saturday evening.

Photos of Romero playing baseball were shown on the Southwest University Park jumbotron as the crowd of thousands grew silent in his honor.

This comes one day after friends and family of the 16-year-old gathered at a ceremony during Friday evening’s baseball game.

Romero’s family will host a celebration of life at 5 p.m. Tuesday at La Paz in Las Cruces.

A mass will be held at the same location on Wednesday at 10 a.m., followed by his burial.
