2/1/2011-It's not UTEP/NMSU but it might be the next best thing for Las Cruces Fans. The El Paso Diablos invited the Las Cruces Vaqueros for two spring training game on May 8 in Cohen Stadium in El Paso. The Vaqueros salary structure is 1/4 of the Diablos but the game will still be competitive in 2010 the Vaqueros played the San Angelo Colts to a 1 run game in both ends of a doubleheader. For El Paso who opens with the Kansas City T-Bones on May 12th it will be about finding the best available local opponent that they can find. The Diablos have historically scrimmaged El Paso Community College due to lack of options. The Diablos are in process of building a very solid team behind new manager Jorge Alvarez. Fans are encouraged to wear powder blue in support of the Vaqueros.
