ROUND ROCK, Texas — It's almost game time!
The Round Rock Express will kick off opening day at Dell Diamond Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m.
In conjunction with the team's historic 20th anniversary season, the 2019 season also kicks off their reaffiliation with the Houston Astros. The Round Rock Express has also unveiled new logos and set of uniforms.
Out at Dell Diamond itself, the stadium has introduced new seating, vendors and Home Run Dugout, an augmented reality batting cage.
While there's a lot of new rolling out, President of Round Rock Express Chris Almendarez said creating a strong sense of tradition out at Dell Diamond is also a priority.
"Just the 20th year anniversary, I think there's a lot of special things and a lot of memories were made," said Almendarez. "There's a lot of great memories and that's the thing when you walk through the front doors. We want a great experience, but we also want some memories made with whatever family is coming out."
The Express open the home portion of their historic 20th anniversary season for a five-game series against the Nashville Sounds (Texas Rangers affiliate) at Dell Diamond. Fireworks and other special promotions will be a part of Opening Day festivities.
The first 2,000 fans through the gates get a 20th-anniversary coin to commemorate the start of a historic season.
