Tacuarineros de Culiacán
The Tacuarineros de Culiacán baseball club was one of the four original founding members of the Mexican Pacific Coast League, a minor league circuit that operated in Mexico in the seasons from 1945-46 through 1957-58. They were managed by Manuel Arroyo.
The Tacuarineros were based in Culiacán, the capital of the state of Sinaloa, and played its home games at the Autonomous University of Sinaloa ballpark in their first three seasons. They moved to the Estadio General Ángel Flores for the 1948-49 season, when they won the first of their five pennants, repeating in the 1949-50, 1950-51, 1951-52 and 1955-56 campaigns.
