Artie Escobado Memorial Tournament

Welcome to  the 15th Annual Artie Escobado Memorial Tournament and thank you to all the participants. We are glad so many of you continue to support this tournament with your attendance and we are grateful for all the teams, new and old, which continue to be a part of this tournament! Welcome!

The inaugural Artie Escobado Memorial Tournament was held June 2-4, 2006. The tournament began as, and continues to be a tribute to Artie Escobado, who died tragically at the age of 29 in an automobile accident.

Artie played Old Timers Baseball as a young boy and went on to play at Pueblo Central High School from 1967 to 1969. During the summers he was busy with Legion Ball and eventually began coaching Legion Ball at Runyon Field. Artie was selflessly committed to teaching and coaching boys and girls of all ages the game of baseball, which he fervently loved.

After graduating from Pueblo Central High School in 1969, he was awarded one of eight national Martin Luther King Jr. Academic Scholarships; which provided him a full ride at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

Artie also played fast-pitch softball for Pueblo Aztec Softball Club, 1978, 1979, and 1981. In 1974, Artie decided to move to Dillon Colorado and work in the Union as a Certified Ironworker.

The entire Escobado Family is very happy to be able to present this tournament to Pueblo. We thank you for helping us celebrate Artie's contributions to baseball, his contributions to his family and friends and in general his beautiful short life by attending and participating in this year's Memorial Tournament!

 


Arthur Epifano Escobado
January 20, 1930 — January 21, 2022

In Loving Memory of Arthur Escobado who passed away on January 21, 2022.

Arthur founded Azteca Apartments in 1978 which his family owns and operates today. He was very active in the business community where he served on many Boards and Charitable Organizations. He and his family sponsor the Azteca Baseball Club and the girls Azteca Softball Club and he also coached and sponsored numerous baseball, basketball and soccer teams in Pueblo.

He was a visionary for Pueblo and our family. He leaves behind a legacy of the love for his family, his commitment to his business and community, his faith in his beliefs and most of all, the time he afforded his family and his fellow man. Arthur will be sadly missed by all those that knew him.
