Rio Grande Valley White Wings

"Whitewings" redirects here. For the 1923 film, see White Wings. For the baseball player, see White Wings Tebeau.

The Rio Grande Valley WhiteWings are a professional baseball team based in Harlingen, Texas, in the United States. The WhiteWings are a member of United League Baseball, an independent professional league which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball or Minor League Baseball. From the 1994 season to the present, the WhiteWings have played their home games at Harlingen Field.

History

The WhiteWings were a charter member of the Texas-Louisiana League in 1994, which became the Central Baseball League. The WhiteWings won the Texas-Louisiana League Championship in 2000, upsetting the San Angelo Colts and Amarillo Dillas to win the pennant under manager Eddie Dennis. After falling on hard times the WhiteWings suspended operations in 2003. In late 2005, United League Baseball announced that the WhiteWings would resume play as the first charter member of the new league in 2006.

They changed their name back from Harlingen WhiteWings to their original Rio Grande Valley WhiteWings in May 2009.[1]
