Team history

The franchise was a descendant of the Triple-A Mexican League's Tecolotes de los Dos Laredos (Two Laredo Owls) before moving to Tijuana to become the Toros de Tijuana in 2004. They made the playoffs in their debut season. However, the Mexican League was reported to have stripped the Toros owner of his franchise and gave it to new owners who renamed that team the Potros de Tijuana after the original team that played in several leagues. The Toros ownership kept the team name, logo, uniforms, and history as a result of the alleged political wrangling that went on in that league.[2]

The original ownership group in Mexico was slated to bring the team to the independent Golden Baseball League in 2005, but could not come to a stadium deal in Tijuana.[3] A ballpark was said to be ready in Chula Vista, California, near San Diego, should the team have decided to come to the league. Had they joined the league, they would've not only been the league's first team based outside of the United States (that honor went to the travelling Japan Samurai Bears), but they would have also been the only privately owned team at the time.
