At the end of the 2007 season of the Mexican Baseball League, work began to make efforts to have a professional baseball team return to Nuevo Laredo. After several visits by personnel of the league to the new stadium they agreed to bring back a baseball team and in November 2007 it was announced that the Rieleros de Aguascalientes would become the Tecolotes de Nuevo Laredo for the 2008 season. The stadium is considered one of the best in the league. The field is made from synthetic grass, becoming the third of its kind in the league. Because it was recently constructed, the surface of Estadio Nuevo Laredo is more sophisticated and more similar to natural grass than the two other fields in the Mexican League. It is planned to construct a giant screen and a ceiling covering the seating area.
