The team was founded on October 8, 1970, and its home stadium is the Estadio Tomás Oroz Gaytán. They have been champions of the league on six occasions. The first time was at the 1965–1966 season with Manuel Magallón (Mexico) as coach. The next two occasions were on the 1972–1973 season (coach Dave Garcia, United States) and the 1980–1981 season (coach Lee Sigman, United States).
