Fresh off of back-to-back appearances in the Pacific Coast League Championship and their third playoff berth, the El Paso Chihuahuas announced their 2018 home schedule on Tuesday.
Opening Night is slated for April 10th versus the Salt Lake Bees (Los Angeles Angels) at Southwest University Park.
The home season includes 70 home games of a 140-game schedule that will run through September 3rd.
“We are already hard at work planning our fifth season celebration and have much to do as we plan our best promotional schedule yet,” said Vice President and General Manager Brad Taylor.
The Chihuahuas open their fifth season at Southwest University Park with 13 home games in both April and May including a seven-game series to kick–off the home season against the Bees and Las Vegas (New York Mets), respectively. Salt Lake returns for the second time at the end of April to start an eight-game slate that includes the Reno Aces (Arizona Diamondbacks), April 25th-May 3rd.
June is the heaviest month of the season with 16 home games including a seven-game homestand against the American Southern Division’s Nashville Sounds (Oakland A’s) and Memphis Redbirds (St. Louis Cardinals).
The homestand also features a Father’s Day game on June 17th.
The team will close out June with regional rival Albuquerque (Colorado Rockies) as part of a nine-game set that leads up to the Fourth of July (June 25th-July 3rd). The Chihuahuas take a break from play July 9th-11th for the Triple-A All-Star Game before returning home to play Reno July 12th through July 15th.
The Chihuahuas will end the 2018 campaign with 15 games in August and conclude the regular season at home with four games versus Tacoma (Seattle Mariners) during Labor Day weekend (August 31s-September 3rd).
The Chihuahuas will face Albuquerque, Fresno, Las Vegas, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake and Tacoma twice as members of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) Pacific Conference.
