First Seats Installed In The Chihuahuas Ballpark
The first seats were installed on Sunday in the Chihuahuas ballpark and a few lucky fans got to sit in them.
Jill and Brent Michener were the first individuals to purchase season tickets for the Chihuahuas inaugural season, and Shae Vierra won the "Name the team" contest. Vierra said "I never thought a name that I selected would make the finals but it did and it was really rewarding."
These three fans were the first ones to ever sit in the new stadium. The seats were the first of 7,500 to be installed in the stadium which will hold a total of 10,000 fans. The first ever season ticket holders mentioned, "We were just excited when we heard the possibility of a Triple-A team here and especially a new ballpark ...for the entertainment value it can provide the community so we just felt like we wanted to be a part of it."
The baseball diamond is also starting to take shape as opening day scheduled for April 28th verses the Fresno Grizzles is just 57 days away.
