El Paso Hits a Home Run with Their New Awesome Sports Logo

Huge Awesome Sports Logos props to MountainStar Sports Group for naming their new Triple A team in El Paso the Chihuahuas. To select the name, they did a contest and received more than 5,000 entries but Chihuahuas went to the top of the list.

I love this logo and so do El Paso and a lot of other people. According to the El Paso Times, the team has already sold merchandise in 35 different states, Canada and Mexico. This is a perfect example of why more teams need to be original. Our goal at Awesome Sports Logos is to bring back the fun and creativity to sports logos and the El Paso Chihuahuas fall right in line with that goal.

Here’s why this logo makes sense. El Paso is part of the Chihuahuan desert. The Mexican state of Chihuahua borders El Paso, the popularity of small dogs in the U.S. is off the charts and this logo appeals to kids and family, something that minor league baseball is all about.
The buzz is absolutely huge on this logo and it should be. ESPN and CNN have run stories on the new name and logo. El Paso baseball has received more publicity than ever before and you can bet on this logo leading the way with merchandise sales. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a trend. Hopefully other cities will see the upcoming success of El Paso and will come up with creative sports logos.

We received  a couple of emails this week asking if we were mad that El Paso copied one of our more popular logos, the Beverly Hills Fighting Chiweenies. There was no copying involved and a Chiweenie is in the Chihuahua family but it’s not the same pooch. Their logo is awesome and we think our logo is awesome. I do appreciate it though because that means our logo looks like the pros and that’s a complement to our designers. I love it when docile animals become vicious in sports logos. It’s funny and creative.

We also have an El Paso team, the El Paso Luchadores. We love this basketball logo that mixes in the rich history of the Luchadores.

Thanks so much for reading and go El Paso Chihuahuas! We’re rooting for you!!
