EL PASO -- The El Paso Chihuahuas wrapped up their 2014 campaign Monday afternoon at Southwest University Ballpark.

Fans told KFOX14 there were a lot of ups and downs during the team's inaugural season but overall they had fun.

Juan Morales had never been to a Chihuahuas game before Monday but said he really enjoyed the stadium.

"It's a beautiful ballpark," said Morales.  "How could you not fall in love with it?"

Brian Mathews said, "The fans are great and the field looks great."

Mathews came to Monday's game to spend time with his family before his son Raymond deploys.

El Paso, now 72-72, ended their season by defeating the Salt Lake Bees 10-4.

Steve Barrett is a season ticket holder and told KFOX14 there were a lot of memorable moments this season.

The Chihuahuas started their season playing their home games on the road because the ballpark wasn't ready.  However, fans proved, if you build it, they will come. 

Barrett said, "The stadium will be open from the beginning so hopefully they get off to a better start and make the playoffs next year."

The Chihuahuas will open the 2015 season at home on April 9 against the Tacoma Rainiers.

El Paso, which will play 72 home games next season, will host the Gildan Triple-A Baseball National Championship on Sept. 22.
