EL PASO - March 18, 2019 - The Margarita Lives! As part of Minor League Baseball's Copa De La Diversi ón campaign, the El Paso Chihuahuas are joining 71 other MiLB teams and will transform into the EL PASO MARGARITAS for five home games during the 2019 season.
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 lime green uniform jersey and pants with a blue belt and a matching New Era 59-Fifty cap.
Each Margaritas game will feature a premium giveaway for the first 1,500 guests in attendance with paid admission. Giveaways and dates are listed below.
Started in 2017, 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 entered the Copa race at the start of the 2018 season as Los Chihuahuas.
