Pro Baseball Returns To Kino Stadium Tonight-Sunday With Visit Tucson's Mexican Baseball Fiesta

Posted: Updated:

Visit Tucson is presenting the Mexican Baseball Fiesta once again at the Kino Sports Complex. Games begin on Thursday and last through the weekend, with the showdown between the Obregon Yaquis and Hermosillo Naranjeros expecting a near-sellout crowd in Tucson once again.  Here's more from a Pima County press release:

In preparation for the 2016 Mexican Baseball Fiesta, which gets underway Sept. 29, three participating teams of the Mexican Pacific League will hold a training camp at Kino Sports Complex Sept. 19-28.

Spectators are welcome to observe the teams during their training sessions, which will include the typical batting practice and field play. There will be no charge for parking or admission.

All training sessions will take place at various fields in the Kino South Campus.

The participating teams in this year’s fiesta include the Naranjeros de Hermosillo, Yaquis de Obregón, Águilas de Mexicali, Tomateros de Culiacán, and the Cañeros de Los Mochis. However, the training camp will only feature three of the five participating teams. The teams will practice concurrently during the two weeks at various fields in the Kino South Campus. See the training schedule below for more details.

On Sept. 19, the Kino Box Office, located in front of Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium, will also start selling tickets to the 2016 Mexican Baseball Fiesta. The Fiesta, scheduled from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, will have doubleheader games each night. General admission tickets cost $9 for adults and $6 for children between the ages of 6-16. Box seats cost $15.
