Mexican Baseball Returns to Tucson This Week

Teams from the Mexican Pacific League will be returning to Tucson Oct. 1-4 for the fifth annual Vamos a Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta, presented by Cox Communications. This year, the Naranjeros de Hermosillo, Yaquis de Obregon, Aguilas de Mexicali, and the Cañeros de Los Mochis will face off at the City's Hi Corbett Field.

"Hi Corbett has the feeling of home to a tremendous amount of baseball fans in the Tucson area," said Mexican Baseball Fiesta President Mike Feder. Visit Tucson reports that more than 1,700 hotel room nights were booked in association with last year's tournament. Tickets are on sale at the Hi Corbett Field box office and online.
