4/14/2011-As the season approaches the number one concern in the Pecos League has been the condition of Apodoca Park Grandstands. On 4/13/2011 the replacement grandstands were finally put into place. The grandstands are 6 rows deep but provide seating for close to 350 people. This gives Las Cruces Season Ticket holders a huge sign of relief. Due to limited seating for the 2011 season the season ticket holders will be given priority seating. The City of Las Cruces has been working days, nights and weekends to get this facility ready for the Vaqueros. The Vaqueros begin Spring Training at Apodoca Park on May 2nd before opening the exhibition season down I-10 against the Diablos at Cohen Stadium. Fans are invited to check out the Vaqueros in Spring Training. Vaqueros Operations Director Claudia Castillo says "Seeing the grandstands is a relief, it assures fans our season is getting off on the right foot". It will also boost season ticket sales as the Vaqueros fans know the park will be ready for opening day.
