    This 2016 edition of the El Paso Chihuahuas baseball team is special team,they mostly rise to the occasion resulting in victory after victory and I sure hope that their success and trend continues.
    I stayed up last night watching our El Paso Chihuahuas on MILB and at first they started off sort of sluggish as the Fresno Grizzlies score first with three runs in the first inning. I’ll tell you that when the Chihuahuas start scoring home run after home run and add more runs to their score. They truly are El Paso’s baseball team of Champions as they are still in first place in the southern division and lead the league in homeruns and hits.
    I also hope that the San Diego Padres wake up from their slump and start winning more games even though I will always root for the San Francisco Giants. But willing to make that change when the right time comes.
    Go Chihuahuas!
