EL PASO - February 18, 2019 - The Fred Loya High School Baseball Series presented by Sarah Farms kicks off tonight, February 18, 2019, when the Coronado Thunderbirds take on the Canutillo Eagles at Southwest University Park. Admission is free and open to the public. The baseball series concludes with a doubleheader on April 22nd.

 

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.
