EL PASO - November 15, 2018 - The El Paso Chihuahuas unveiled a new set of alternate logos and jerseys on Thursday in anticipation of the 2019 All-Star Season.
The unveiling included a new Howling Chihuahuas logo and two updated El Paso and "EP" marks. The Chihuahuas will also have a new look for Wednesday's Diablos Days, as they bring back the Diablos' "Chile D" Pepper logo worn by the El Paso Double-A team from 1999-2004.
"In our sixth season, the All-Star Season, it was time to add to the iconic family of Chihuahuas logos," said Senior Vice President and General Manager Brad Taylor. "These logos embody the fun we, and the community, associate with Chihuahuas baseball. We are also proud to add the star on the mountain to our primary road jersey."
The Howling Chihuahuas logo features the profile of the Chihuahuas logo wearing a sombrero with "EP" across the brim signifying El Paso. A black alternate jersey will feature the Howling Chihuahuas with colorful trim on the sleeves similar to a serape - a traditional cloak or blanket in the Hispanic culture.
The Chihuahuas debuted a new road jersey, featuring a graduated gray landscape of the Franklin Mountains with the mountain star. The El Paso word mark has been updated from the original dual tones of white and tan to a clean and crisp white look. The enhanced word mark will also be featured on a new all black alternate jersey.
The Chihuahuas home jersey and red alternate jersey will remain the same.
Jerseys, apparel and some of the new logoed caps are now available for purchase at the Chihuahuas Durango Team Shop and online. The team shop is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 4p.m. The jerseys are also available online by visiting epchihuahuas.com.
