LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – It’s a big weekend for baseball beginning tonight at Las Vegas Ballpark. The Ballpark announces it will host the 2021 Mexican Baseball Fiesta on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 16-17, 2021. The popular event made its Las Vegas debut at Cashman Field in 2017 and was held at Las Vegas Ballpark in 2019. A “spring training” for teams in the Mexcian Winter Leagues, this fun, colorful and exciting event features two of the top teams in the Liga Mexicana del Pacifico  – Los Naranjeros de Hermosillo and Águilas de Mexicali.
