EL PASO, TEXAS – March 21, 2023 – A new flavor is joining Minor League Baseball’s (MiLB) Copa De La Diversión campaign – the El Paso Strawberry Margaritas! The Chihuahuas will transform into the EL PASO STRAWBERRY MARGARITAS for five home games during 10th Year Celebration, presented by GECU.
The Margaritas debuted a new logo - a strawberry drinking a margarita and holding an umbrella - and the team will don a new look with the color red to signify Strawberry Margaritas. The new Margaritas look includes a blue uniform jersey with red, tan, and lime green trim, and a matching New Era 59-Fifty cap.
The Chihuahuas originally debuted the El Paso Margaritas as part of Copa in 2019, one year after joining the initiative in 2018. The original look comprised of a lime green uniform jersey and matching pants with a blue trim, blue belt, and New Era 59-Fifty cap.
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.
Entering its sixth season, the Copa program looks to grow and connect U.S. LatinX communities with MiLB teams in its diversity and inclusion efforts in and around local communities. For more on Copa de la Diversión® (Fun Cup™), CLICK HERE.
Presented by Pepsi, the Chihuahuas will play as the El Paso Strawberry Margaritas April 13, May 5, June 22, August 10, and September 14.
