PEORIA (WEEK) — With the Peoria Chiefs’ presence of 13 Latino players last season, the organization is introducing En El Rio De Peoria.
Five games in the 2020 season will feature a different name for the team — En El Rio de Peoria at Dozer Park.
It’s part of the largest Fun Cup program that will mean special events and special uniforms and giveaways at most minor league parks this summer.
The team worked with the Greater Peoria Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on themes and entertainment.
“It’s really kind of to show and recognized the contributions that they do both on the baseball teams and in the community. So, I think it’s a very generous off that they are doing this.”
The Chiefs plan to unveil the jerseys and hats in March. The Fun Cup games will be played once a month in all five months of the 2020 season.
