Exciting news for baseball fans in the San Antonio area. The Texas Collegiate League is coming to San Antonio. Five Minor League teams were granted a temporary expansion team and the Missions are one of those teams. The other four teams are the Frisco RoughRiders, Amarillo (2 teams)Sod Poodles, Tulsa Drillers and the Round Rock Express. The Missions will play as the Flying Chanclas but keep in mind, this is only for the 2020 season.
This is great for baseball fans but it’s also good for the players as well. Their seasons were cut short by Covid-19 and this will help them get needed reps and to showcase their talent.
Tickets will likely go fast due to tickets being limited as social distancing will be followed. Around 4,000 fans will be allowed in the park and there will be no assigned seats. Instead ushers will seat you to ensure that social distancing is followed. The tickets will go on sale on Thursday, June 18 at samissions.com so be sure to get yours.
