New Stadium in Hermosillo for 2013 Caribbean World Series Underway



Checked out a pretty cool ballpark design plan in Hermosillo this past week.   Hector Espino Stadium is in its final year as home to the Naranjeros and the new ballpark is to be ready for the 2013 Caribbean World Series.  Hector Espino stadium has been home to the Winter league Naranjeros Club for many years and has also hosted Arizona Diamondback exhibition games .   The new ballpark to be known as Sonara Estadio  and  is strategically located in the center of a new planned development south of the city.

As you can see from the Pinacate Volcano photo above the new ballpark has some similarities.   Vincent Sagrestano head of CODESON, MPL President Omar Canizales, Arturo Lerma chief executive of Naranjeros, Juan Aguirre Manager of the Naranjera Organization, Enrique Mazon, club president, Ramon Ruiz league official, Carlos Gomez Project Manager , Marco Ruiz and Juan Macias Architects and city planners put a lot of thought into the design plan.  The goal to make a place for people to gather year around was focal point.  You’ve heard the saying “All roads lead to Rome” well all the roads in this  future suburb will lead to the new stadium.

The 15000 seat ballpark’s unique design represents the El Pinacate volcano which is about 500KM from Hermosillo in the State of Sonara. The Biosphere Reserve has an extensive history in the area as well as a cultural bond.  The ballpark will have a natural grass field adding more natural eco systems to the venue.  An exciting project!

What will protect attendees from the blazing sun?

there isn’t much of a problem because games are usually held in the winter. If you want to check out updates of the stadium you can check here. They have updated pictures and info almost every week. The only problem is that it’s in spanish.
