El Paso, TX (KTSM) — After months of waiting, the Borderland will finally find out the name behind those eyes.
A news conference scheduled for Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in the Plaza's Theatre's Philanthropy Theatre will finally reveal the city's AAA baseball mascot/team name.
While the city anxiously awaits the news of who, or what will be representing El Paso's new Triple-A baseball team, the marketing firm behind the branding released another video in their "It's More than Baseball" YouTube series over the weekend.
Designers from Brandiose, a San Diego based design team, known for branding other baseball teams throughout the country, spoke at length about the design process and how they come to the final decisions about mascot design.
Tuesday afternoon, more than 1,000 little league, t-ball and other youth baseball players from throughout the city have been invited to attend a special ceremony at the Plaza Theater at 4:30 p.m. While MountainStar, or its marketing company Mithoff Burton has declined to comment, many speculate that this will be the formal announcement of the new Triple-A mascot.
