The Charros de Jalisco (Jalisco Horsemen) made their Mexican League debut in 1949, but lasted just 4 seasons. They were revived in 1964 and won the Liga pennant three years later. They won another title in 1971, despite trailing 3-0 in the championship series. The team again vanished after the 1975 season.
The next revival was a very short one when the Charros appeared in the Mexican Center League under the name Charros de Guadalajara; a highlight on that club was the presence of longtime Mexican League star Ray Torres.
The next Charro team was also short-lived as in 1988 the Charros popped up for the third time in the Liga. That year the Puebla Angels moved to Guadalajara and became the new edition of the Jalisco Charros. Despite going 75-55, drawing over 270,000 fans (second in the league) and boasting prominent players like Willie Aikens, the team ran into conflict with the League. With the Mexican League authorities demanding new ownership, the team was moved after the 1988 season to Monterrey, where they became the Monterrey Industrials. Jalisco returned once again in 1991, when the Charros' Rich Renteria hit .442 to lead the league. That edition of the Charros lasted through 1995 without claiming a third title for Jalisco.
In 2014, the team was re-born as a winter league team in the Mexican Pacific League. They finished atop the league standings that first season but did not win the postseason; in 2019, they took the title despite a sub-.500 regular season.
