COLORADO SPRINGS – The Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox baseball team is playing one its final two games ever Sunday.

The Sky Sox will face off against the Oklahoma City Dodgers at home at Security Service Field. This is the team’s second to last game of 30 years in Colorado Springs.

The Sky Sox are scheduled to start their 2019 season in their new home in San Antonio, Texas. The Elmore Sports Group announced the relocation in June 2017.

The sports group said the move is part of a realignment of several owned clubs.

“For many years, it has become increasingly difficult to find a Major League Baseball team that is interested in Colorado Springs as a long-term home for their Triple-A club due to the weather and elevation, which make it hard to develop and evaluate players, particularly in the early spring months,” said Elmore. “Moving a short season club to Colorado Springs is a perfect fit, as we have tremendous fan support, particularly during those summer months, a beautiful ballpark that will be among the finest in the Pioneer Baseball League and a solution that is beneficial for Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball.”

The new team to move in, a short season rookie-level team from Helena, Montana. But, Sky Sox fans have one more chance to catch the local team on Monday, September 3 at 1 p.m.
