    Mexican Baseball Fiesta returns for its tenth year on Sept. 30 – Oct. 3, at Kino Sports Complex. The Fiesta features four professional teams of the Mexican Pacific League and the University of Arizona Wildcats. Festivities include double-header games each night, delicious food, live entertainment, music, and much more. Buy your tickets online now or get them in person starting Sept. 22, at the Kino Box Office, 2500 E. Ajo Way. Box office phone number is (520) 222-1008.

    This year’s fiesta includes Hermosillo, Obregon, Mexicali, Navojoa, and the University of Arizona Wildcats. All games will take place at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium, 2500 E. Ajo Way. Parking is $5/car on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Parking is free on Sunday. Stadium gates open one hour before the first game.

    “The Vamos A Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta has become one of the top entertainment/baseball events on the Tucson calendar,” said Mike Feder, President of the Mexican Baseball Fiesta. “The word Fiesta best describes our event – a party! We believe the Fiesta is the largest Hispanic sporting event in Tucson every year. The MBF has also had a significant economic impact in Pima County.”

    The Mexican Baseball Fiesta also features a concert by La Brissa after the second game on Friday, Oct. 1. La Brissa is a ten-piece band hailing from Ciudad Obregon, Mexico. After the double-header, stay for La Brissa’s unique modern Cumbias and rancheras.
