After hosting a very successful Mexican Baseball Fiesta last year, local organizers have decided this year to extend the event to two days this year, Oct. 3-4 which will include all four teams in the Mexican Baseball League.
This year’s event will be held again at Copper King Stadium. Game times are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. each evening.
At a press conference in Tucson on Monday it was announced the Naranjeros will face the Aguilas de Mexicali on Oct. 3 and the Caneros de los Mochis will play the Yaquis on Oct. 4.
Ticket prices are being finalized and are scheduled to go on sale later this month.
A press conference is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 3 p.m. in Agua Prieta. Local organizers will then make a presentation to the Douglas City Council at its meeting that same evening.
