EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The $50 million stadium being built for El Paso's new minor league baseball team will be called Southwest University Park.

Officials with the El Paso Chihuahuas and Southwest University at El Paso, which was accredited in 2012, made the announcement Wednesday. Terms of the 20-year naming agreement were not made public.

The Chihuahuas, formerly the Tucson Padres, open their schedule next month.

The team remains the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.
