“The Vamos A Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta has become one of the top entertainment/baseball events on the Tucson calendar,” said Mike Feder, president of the Mexican Baseball Fiesta. “The word ‘fiesta’ best describes our event – a party! We believe the fiesta is the largest Hispanic sporting event in Tucson every year. The MBF has also had a significant economic impact in Pima County.”

In addition to teams from Mexico, the Arizona Wildcats will play in the second half of the double-header on Sunday, Oct. 3. “This game is a great opportunity for our program to connect with the Tucson community while also competing at the highest level,” Arizona Baseball Head Coach Chip Hale said. “Playing against a quality opponent in Obregon will give us a great early evaluation of our roster and present our freshman class with their first taste of performing in front of a large, engaged crowd.”
The Mexican Baseball Fiesta also features a concert by La Brissa after the second game on Friday, Oct. 1. La Brissa is a 10-piece band hailing from Ciudad Obregon, Mexico. After the double-header, the public is invited to stay for La Brissa’s unique, modern Cumbias and rancheras.
