An Albuquerque Isotopes alter ego has won a major award from Minor League Baseball. And, no, it’s not the Green Chile Cheeseburgers.
Yet, for the Isotopes organization, the selection of the Mariachis de Nuevo México as the winner of MiLB’s inaugural Copa de La Diversión (Fun Cup) event series is delicious in its own right.
Albuquerque, which adopted the moniker Mariachis de Nuevo México for the Latino-focused event series, won the vote from MiLB’s new Latinx (Latino/Latina) Advisory Committee composed of leaders in multicultural academia, media and marketing. The announcement was made Monday morning at the opening session of the Baseball Winter Meetings in Las Vegas.
