Through its seven years, Isotopes Park has seen its fair share of big events; an exhibition between the Isotopes and defending World Champion Florida Marlins in 2004; a pair of exhibition games between the Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies, and Arizona Diamondbacks in 2005, the 2007 Triple-A All-Star Game, and of course, who can forget about the arrival of a certain dreadlocked slugger last June.
Next season, the ‘Topes will open up their eighth year of existence with another event sure to garner national attention as the Rockies and Seattle Mariners will play back-to-back exhibition games on April 2-3, 2010 at Isotopes Park.
Both teams will have just broken Spring Training in Arizona and will be heading north to start the season (Rox will start in Milwaukee, Seattle at Oakland) meaning there is a very good chance Albuquerque will get to see the two Major League squads in an almost completed form.
If you look at both rosters, big names abound. Ken Griffey, Jr., Ichiro, Todd Helton, and Troy Tulowitzki all could possibly be taking the field at Isotopes Park next April. Tickets are on sale now for ‘Topes season ticket and mini-plan holders and ducats will go on sale to the general public on Feburary 20. For more information, click here.
