Artist Rendering of New Stadium
The Municipal Baseball Stadium, known locally as the Francisco Leon Garia stadium, is currently receiving a major overhaul, backed by a budget of more than 30 million pesos. Puerto Peñasco Mayor Kiko Munro stated that the Francisco León García Stadium is host to numerous important tournaments and competitions, and is home to local fan favorite Los Tiburones de Puerto Peñasco baseball team, which is and will remain part of the Liga Norte de México.
A rumor that had gone around was that the name of the facility would be changed. The authorities have stated that these were false rumors and the name will remain unchanged, preserving the tradition and familiarity with the stadium that locals have known for many years.
Renovations are moving quickly and the administration expects completion within the next few weeks as baseball season begins on April 4th in which the Peñasco Tiburones will represent Puerto Peñasco in the Northern League. The inaugural game will be between the Rojos of Caborca and the Tiburones of Puerto Peñasco.
The new design will include reconstruction of the ticket booths in front of the stadium, a snack bar on the second floor, shade cover, and much more. Engineer Francisco Flores states that the stadium remodel will be complete by the end of April, in plenty of time to our first home game.
If you have never attended a Tiburones baseball game in Puerto Peñasco, do yourself a favor and give it a try. The experience will bring you back again and again.
