The Guerreros de Oaxaca (English: Oaxaca Warriors) are a AAA-level baseball team playing in the Mexican League in Oaxaca de Juarez, Oaxaca, Mexico. Their home field is the Eduardo Vasconcelos Stadium.[1]

History

In October 1995 a group of businessmen, led by Alfredo Harp Helu, learned that the team Charros de Jalisco was 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 directive gave the big surprise of recruiting the batter and historic figure in the league, Nelson Barrera, who came from Mexico.[2]

Only in his third season took up with his first and so far only league title by sweeping the Monclova Steelers in the final series of the 1998 season.

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