Vaqueros have turn around season despite record
The Pecos League and Las Cruces Vaqueros returned to Apodoca Park in 2015 after not playing in Las Cruces in 2013 and 2014. The season was successful despite the team finishing in dead last place in the league. The Vaqueros established a new group of fans and built an entire new staff off of the field.
"The Vaqueros were great, I went to ever game and I had never been to Vaqueros game before this year. By the end of the season we really had a fan base. When the team starts winning things will be great." says Donna Almarez Co-Owner of High Desert Brewery.
Teri Trujillo of Las Cruces "Most people didn't even know that the Vaqueros are back. By the end of the year people started to realized and more and more people attended the games."
"I am glad that we decided to return to Las Cruces. It was a successful season. There is a need for baseball in Las Cruces at our level. Not everyone wants to goto El Paso and pay very high prices." Andrew Dunn of Pecos League
"The players we had were liked in the community that wasn't the case with earlier Vaqueros Teams. I got a really bad draw of players out of Spring Training and never recovered. I got some International kids that couldn't play at all. The entire season we were playing catch up with the roster. In 2016 I will have guys that can play in this league from Day 1." says Darrell Carrillo Field Manager Las Cruces Vaqueros
In 2016 the Vaqueros look to improve in attendence and in the standings.
