As steel rises around home plate, concrete is rising in the outfield of El Paso’s new downtown Triple-A ballpark.

Concrete work is underway on buildings which will house the visiting team’s bullpen, the scoreboard, party and group decks, a team store, and ticket booths.

Crews are also constructing the outfield wall. At its furthest point, the outfield wall is 412 feet from home plate. It is 24 feet tall at its highest point in left field.

When construction is complete, the City of El Paso will own the state-of-the-art downtown ballpark which will be the home of the El Paso Chihuahuas, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres baseball team.
