EP Triple-A Teases Mascot, Releases Video

Two intense looking eyeballs are now greeting visitor's to the El Paso Triple-A website (, a way of teasing the public on the still-unannounced mascot for the baseball team. The ball club narrowed the possibilities down to five mascots in June, the Aardvarks, Buckaroos, Chihuahuas, Desert Gators, or Sun Dogs.

Based on the eyes peering out from the website, the candidates most likely include the Desert Gators or Sun Dogs, though any mascot could be made to have a fierce stare. El Pasoans submitted ideas for the mascot, and team owners allowed the public to vote on the finalists earlier this year.

The website also debuted the first in what it describes as a web video series. The two minute video is more of a slideshow of construction images from the ballpark site and includes a voice-over by Jason King of Dover, Kohl & Partners.

The firm helped the City draft Plan El Paso which was incorporated into the City's comprehensive plan in 2012. King speaks about how the stadium is about "more than baseball" in the way that it can help create more vibrant neighborhoods due to the crowds.

The mascot's eyes and the video can be seen at the Triple-A website,
