More netting to be added at Southwest University Park


Chihuahuas games will be safer this season.

Officials announced Friday that more protective netting will be added to Southwest University Park.

The netting will now extend to the end of both dugouts, between sections 106 and 119.

“The safety and comfort of our guests at Southwest University Park has always been our primary objective,” said MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford. “While we have always met and exceeded the recommended parameters provided by Major League Baseball, we constantly follow developments in our industry and determined the time is right to provide additional coverage from protective netting.”

The Chihuahuas 2018 Fifth Season Celebration kicks off with the San Diego Padres vs. Chihuahuas exhibition game on March 26 with the regular season slated to begin on Thursday, April 5, in Las Vegas. The Chihuahuas home opener will be on Tuesday, April 10. Individual game tickets for the Fifth Season Celebration, including the Padres vs. Chihuahuas Exhibition Game, will go on sale at a later date.
