It will be the first of six Mariachis games in 2020 (May 9, June 20, July 12, Aug. 15, Sept. 4), presented by Modelo Especial.
In addition to the six Mariachis dates, the Albuquerque Green Chile Cheeseburgers, presented by Blake's Lotaburger, will return for the fourth consecutive season, taking the field on Aug. 22.
The Isotopes will host 14 postgame fireworks extravaganzas, including all 11 Saturday home games.
Other highlights of the home schedule include 34 weekend dates (the most since 2008), and home games on Mother's Day (May 10), Father's Day (June 21), Independence Day (July 4) and Labor Day (Sept. 7).
The season will feature 18 series over 12 homestands.
"In addition to adding a sixth Mariachis game to the schedule and our 14 fireworks shows, we've got some great promotions planned for 2020," said Isotopes General Manager John Traub. "Opening Night can't get here soon enough!"
Albuquerque's 18th season concludes at home on Labor Day, Sept. 7.
The 2020 campaign will mark the sixth season the Isotopes will play as the Colorado Rockies Triple-A affiliate.
The 2020 season will see a new team added to the Pacific Coast League as the New Orleans Baby Cakes have moved to Wichita, KS and will remain the Miami Marlins affiliate.
