On Monday, the El Paso Chihuahuas unveiled a new look as part of Minor League Baseball’s Copa de la Diversión campaign.
Via a news release, officials with the team shared, “Margaritas hold a significant place in the city’s history, considering the beverage’s origins trace back to 1942 in El Paso. The beverage represents more than a drink: it represents El Paso’s welcoming culture, its soul, and the good times associated with the city and the team.”
Along with the name, the Chihuahuas will don a new look that includes a lime green uniform jersey and pants, with a blue belt and a matching New Era 59-Fifty cap.
Started in 2018, Copa’s mission is to authentically connect MiLB teams with their diverse communities and embrace and celebrate the culture and values that resonate most with Latinx fans nationwide.
The Chihuahuas are joining 71 other minor league teams and will transform into the El Paso Margaritas for five home games during the 2019 season – May 5, May 30, June 18, July 12 & August 20. The new promotion is presented by Manzanita Sol.
