The Fred Loya High School Baseball Series presented by Sarah Farms got underway Monday night, as the first of seven games was played at Southwest University Park.
Monday night featured a battle between West El Paso and Northwest part of the city as the Coronado Thunderbirds took on the Canutillo Eagles. The games continue today with a doubleheader.
The series, in its fifth season, gives local high school baseball athletes the chance to play on a Triple-A baseball field. The games not only give high school athletes the chance to have the big-league experience, but also serve as a fundraiser for each team with a portion of each Chihuahuas ticket sold going back to the participating school.
Admission is free and open to the public. The baseball series concludes with a doubleheader on April 22nd.
For more information or to play a high school game at the ballpark, call or text Austin Weber at (915) 242-2027.
