MountainStar Sports Group has officially acquired the Tucson Padres Triple-A ball club. The announcement came on Thursday, October 11, 2012, at a press conference held at the Plaza Theater, just blocks away from where City Hall now stands, the future location of a downtown baseball stadium.

And now a new website has been unveiled for the future El Paso team with several sections dedicated to helping the residents familiarize themselves with the upcoming ball club. The public can visit to see conceptual images of the ballpark, read about different ticket packages that will be available, and sign up to receive updates through a newsletter that will be distributed by the club.

The website reveals more details about the stadium itself indicating that it will include:
  • 8,000 - 9,000 seats 
  • 20 – 30 luxury seats

  • Team office space and retail store
  • Party decks/zones
  • Bar/restaurant
  • Kids Zone
  • Outfield seating
  • 360 degree access around park
  • Diversified food options

El Paso will be one of 30 cities in the country with a Triple-A club and will be part of the Pacific Coast League. Opening day for the stadium is scheduled for April 2014.
