The Delfines del Carmen were a Mexican League Baseball expansion club based in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche. They played its home games at the Estadio Resurgimiento in Ciudad del Carmen.[1]

History[edit]

In November 2011, Colombian entrepreneur Carlos Mejía bought the Tecolotes de Nuevo Laredo and moved them to Campeche.[2]

The Delfines del Carmen operated in a span of five years from 2012 through 2016 as members of the MLB South Division. They had only two winning seasons, made the playoffs in 2013 and 2014 – including the division title in 2013 – and posted the second worst record of the league in 2016. The team folded at the end of this season.[1]

In November 2016, the Mexican League announced that the franchise was moved to Ciudad Durango, the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of Durango. It was renamed as the Generales de Durango and was slated to debut in the 2017 season.[3]
