Here’s some exciting news. The Frisco RoughRiders will be among the new teams to join the Copa de la Diversión in 2022. The Frisco RoughRiders Copa de la Diversión team name and logo has yet to be made public.
The Copa de la Diversión was started in 2017 by Minor-League baseball in an effort to connect with Hispanic/Latino communities and help grow the sport.
It was called Es Divertido Ser Un Fan in 2017 and then changed to the current Copa de la Diversión in 2018. Since then it has expanded and there will be 85 minor-league teams participating. Four of which will be the Rangers affiliates.
The Rangers have three affiliates that currently participate in the Copa de la Diversión. Round Rock Express (Chupacabras), Hickory Crawdads (Llamas de Hickory) and the Down East Wood Ducks (Avacados Luchadores).
Each team has a certain name and logo and play a handful of games under that moniker.
This is a developing story.
