The Edinburg Roadrunners are a professional baseball team based in Edinburg, Texas, in the United States. The Roadrunners are a member of the United League Baseball, an independent professional league which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball or Minor League Baseball. They played in United League Baseball from 2006 to 2010 and the North American League from 2011 to 2012. From the 2006 season to the present, the Roadrunners have played their home games at Edinburg Stadium.

History[edit]

Formerly named the Edinburg Coyotes, this franchise of United League Baseball replaced the Central Baseball League's Edinburg Roadrunners as the area's professional baseball club. The Coyotes began their existence by winning a historic 17 games without a loss, a minor league record, completing over 5 series before finally losing to the San Angelo Colts. The Coyotes went on to win the inaugural United League regular season title before losing to the Alexandria Aces in the league championship. After spending its first three seasons as the Coyotes, United League Baseball at a press conference on April 30, 2009 announced the franchise would become the Edinburg Roadrunners, named after the prior popular ball club, including its team logo and mascot.
