SAN ANTONIO, Texas – As the doors close on the end of the Texas League and Double-A baseball in San Antonio, more details emerge about the Missions’ 2019 Triple-A season.

According to the team, the Missions’ home opener in 2019 will be against the Memphis Redbirds on Tuesday, April 9. The Redbirds are the Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fans can also mark their calendars for the Missions’ I-35 rivalry with the Round Rock Express. The teams will battle in a four-game series starting May 3 at Wolff Stadium.

Round Rock also participated in the “Copa de la Diversion" campaign this season. A potential matchup between the Round Rock’s “Chupacabras” and San Antonio’s “Flying Chanclas” would be a sight to see.

The Missions will wrap up the 2018 regular season this coming weekend against the Corpus Christi Hooks. Sunday’s 6:05 p.m. game at the Wolff will be the final “Flying Chanclas” game of the season as they face the “Raspas.”

Monday’s regular season finale against the Hooks will be at 2:05 p.m.
