Minor League Baseball fans know that baseball season means it’s time for Copa de la Diversión (or “Fun Cup”) — a season-long event series designed to “connect teams with their local US Hispanic communities.”
For special games and events, the Timber Rattlers transform into Los Cascabeles — so named because it translates into “jingle bells,” another way to describe the rattlesnake’s warning sound. Hold onto your hats. This year, the Cascabeles uniform will change to a new lime green palette.
Copa de la Diversión began in 2017 with four teams in Charlotte, Durham, Visalia, and Las Vegas. The next year, it expanded to 33 teams and added a little competition. The 2018 winner? The attendance-record-breaking Mariachis de Nuevo México in Albuquerque.
This year, 90 MiLB teams will compete to be crowned campeón based on ballpark experience, community engagement, and philanthropic impact.
