EL PASO, Texas (CBS4/KFOX14) —
Baseball is the cake. Promotions, theme nights and giveaways are the icing, sprinkles and cherry on top! Here is the "sweet stuff" coming to Southwest University Park in 2017.
The season kicks-off on Thursday, April 6th at 7:05 p.m. against the Las Vegas 51s (New York Mets) as the start of a five game home stand. Join the Chihuahuas as they celebrate Championship Weekend, honoring the 2016 Pacific Coast League (PCL) Championship. The Chihuahuas will host four giveaways in five games including rally towels, flat screen TVs, magnet schedules and will be headlined by the first premium giveaway of the season, a replica PCL Championship ring! The first 2,000 fans through the gates on April 9th may get their very own replica Championship ring, courtesy of Southwest University.
Fans will be treated to two collectors' series giveaways in 2017: Core Four Bobblehead Series & Build-A-Chihuahuas-Uniform Set.
2016 fan favorites Carlos Asuaje, Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges and Hunter Renfroe are returning to Southwest University Park in bobblehead form! The Core Four Bobblehead series, presented by GECU, will honor the All-PCL Chihuahuas players from last season on May 15th, June 26th, July 24th and August 14th, respectively. Fans are encouraged to collect all four as the bases fit together.
Kids Day Sundays will feature an eight-part giveaway, Build-A-Chihuahuas-Uniform set, exclusively for children 12 & under.
