This Tijuana Toros 2004 Inaugural Guide is from the original Tijuana Toros of LMB. They set the Mexican league on fire with huge crowds.
The franchise was previously the Tecolotes de los Dos Laredos (The Owls of both Laredos, Texas and Mexico) before moving to Tijuana in 2004. They made the playoffs in their debut season. But, the Mexican League was reported to have stripped the Toros owner of his franchise and gave it to new owners who renamed that team the Potros de Tijuana (after the original team that played in Tijuana in several previous leagues). The Toros ownership kept the team name, logo, uniforms and history as a result of the alleged political wrangling that went on in that league.
The original ownership in Mexico were slated to bring the team to the independent Golden Baseball League and were expected to play in 2005, but could not come to a stadium deal in Tijuana. A ballpark was said to be ready in Chula Vista, California near San Diego should the team have decided to come to the league.
