The El Paso Chihuahuas season opener delayed officially after Major League Baseball makes an announcement delaying Triple-A baseball.

Not so fast, that’s what the Major League Baseball (MLB) is saying, announcing on Wednesday that it’s postponing the start of Triple-A baseball Wednesday morning.

Due to the lingering pandemic, the MLB has decided to postpone the start of the Triple-A 2021 season, with valid health concerns for the teams, coaches, overall staff, and public.

Initially, the El Paso Chihuahuas expected to start the season in April, but it will now begin on the road on May 6 at Tacoma (Seattle Mariners affiliate).

Opening Day at Southwest University Park is now re-scheduled to occur on May 13 at 7:05 p.m. when the El Paso Chihuahuas take on Albuquerque (Colorado Rockies).

Due to the schedule delay, the El Paso Chihuahuas have altered the game schedule by adding two home games on July 12 and 13, initially scheduled as days off.

As part of a 142-game schedule that will run through September 21, the El Paso Chihuahuas 2021 season initially included 72 road and 70 home games.
