El Paso Chihuahuas

From BR Bullpen


Team History[edit]

After the 2013 season the Tucson Padres moved to El Paso, TX to become the El Paso Chihuahuas. The name Chihuahuas was selected through a name the team contest, defeating finalists Aardvarks, Buckaroos, Desert Gators and Sun Dogs. The team's ballpark is named after the newly-accredited Southwest University at El Paso.

In only their third season, the Chihuahuas were Pacific Coast League Champions. They faced the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in the 2016 Triple-A Baseball National Championship but lost, 3-1.
