KOB-TV: Eased Restrictions Allow For More Sports To Return


Changes to the states Red to Green Frameworkfor reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic now allow for many sports to resume.

The UNM baseball team can now play at their home field, which has been renovated.

Lobo women's, softball, tennis, and the rest of spring sports will be able to host games.

"It's been a true testament to our student athletes and our coaches for their patience and understanding, but we're excited-- really appreciative of the governor, the governor's office and everybody that's been a part of this," said UNM Athletics Director Eddie Nunez. 

The Isotopes are getting ready for the April 8 season opener, but are waiting for Major League Baseball to finalize the schedule.

"Baseball has always been a part of the healing in this country and certainly in this community, and we are so looking forward to being able to provide some sense of normalcy back into the community and to provide that healing we are very much looking forward to that day when we can say play ball," said Isotopes' General Manager John Traub. 

New Mexico United will also be allowed to play their home matches, without fans as of right now, at Isotopes Park
