The Guerreros de Oaxaca (English: Oaxaca Warriors) are a Triple-A Minor League Baseball team which plays in the Mexican League in Oaxaca de Juarez, Oaxaca, Mexico. Their home field is Eduardo Vasconcelos Stadium.[1]

History[edit]

In October 1995, a group of businessmen, led by Alfredo Harp Helú, learned that the Charros de Jalisco were unable to continue participating in the league. These businessmen saw the opportunity to move the team from Guadalajara to the city of Oaxaca, and the project was officially presented at a meeting of directors of the Mexican League. The franchise change was officially accepted in December of that year and the new Warriors, as they were named, played their first game on March 14, 1996, under the direction of manager Alfredo 'Lefty' Ortiz. The team recruited Mexican batter Nelson Barrera for its inaugural season..[2]

The Warriors won their first and only league championship in 1998 by sweeping the Monclova Steelers in the final series.

Former Major League Baseball player Oscar Azócar played for the Warriors in 2000.
