The Scharbauer Sports Complex has a new "centerpiece".

Coming Soon! For early booking information or questions about the Cimarex Energy Pavilion call (432) 520-2255 or email us at

The "commons area," positioned directly between Citibank Ballpark and Grande Communications Stadium ... known at the Cimarex Energy Pavilion.

"On behalf of the City of Midland and the RockHounds Baseball Club, we're excited that Cimarex has stepped up to be our naming rights partner," said Monty Hoppel, RockHounds general manager.

While the area has existed since the Complex opened in 2002, the Cimarex Energy Pavilion has become its own entity.

The area will be enclosed with exterior fencing, designed to match that of the two stadiums, and brick column entrances with archways on the east and west ends.

The pavilion will be designed to host a wide array of events, including:

► Concerts
► Football & Soccer Tailgating
► Exhibitions
► Reunions
► Community Festivals & Events
► Company Parties & Picnics
► Car Shows
► Youth Athletics ("Punt, Pass & Kick" and "Pitch, Hit & Run" and various clinics)

"There is a great variety of events for which the pavilion is an ideal venue," Hoppel said. "The possibilities are almost endless. With Citibank Ballpark and Grande Communications Stadium so busy with multiple events, the Cimarex Energy Pavilion gives us (as the Complex's marketers) an attractive, viable option to book events. It also provides event holders with a recognizable area and name to utilize in promoting and marketing their event. "

In addition to its secured entrances and permanent fencing, the pavilion's proximity to Citibank Ballpark and Grande Communications Stadium allows use of stadium facilities, including restrooms, picnic areas, concessions, and parking.

Cimarex Energy Co., based in Denver, Colorado, has a major presence in West Texas. The company also has principal operations in the Mid-Continent and Gulf Coast areas of the United States.
