Before the Chihuahuas, baseball was Browns, Diablos
With the El Paso Chihuahuas season in full swing, I’m reminded of my years covering the former El Paso professional baseball team. I started as a rookie sportswriter at the El Paso Herald-Post. And now we have the El Paso Chihuahuas, who were an instant success. Together with the city, MountainStar Sports Group built Southwest University Park for the team to play in. It opened in 2014 (and now is also the home of the El Paso Locomotive FC). (Ray Sanchez, El Paso Inc., 6/4/2021)
