Ruben’s Row

The Surprise Stadium, in honor of Mark A. Coronado and his father, we have been able to share the experience of our traditions through the Ruben’s Row seating program.

Mark A. Coronado, was a remarkable leader recognized for his commitment and dedication to the residents of Surprise. Serving as Community and Recreation Services Director from 2000 until his death in 2018, Mark A.
