Now, after much debate and eventually a contest to name the team, it was revealed on Tuesday that the winning selection was Chihuahuas. The El Paso Chihuahuas. Get used to it. We learned months ago that the San Diego Padres Triple-A affiliate was moving from Tucson to El Paso beginning in 2014. The announcement was made in front of a group of youth baseball players from around the area. The other choices fans were given to pick from included Aardvarks, Desert Gators, Sun Dogs, and Buckaroos, so they clearly made the correct choice. It's actually a pretty fun name that they could do a lot with in terms of the logo, merchandise and future promotions. It‘s creative, too. But most important according to general manager Brad Taylor, it’s kid friendly.
