In it's fifth installment in the 'It's More Than Baseball' series, the El Paso Chihuahuas chose to focus on El Paso Diablos' baseball legend Jim Paul.

The first four installments in the series focused on the Chihuahuas creative process, the building of the baseball stadium, and the 1949 Bowie Bears State Championship baseball team.

When asked why he choose to feature Paul in the series, filmmaker Peter Svarzbein said "Jim Paul revolutionized the concept of baseball as entertainment."



Paul purchased the El Paso Sun Kings in 1974 for $1,000 and changed the name to the Diablos. During his tenure as owner of the El Paso Diablos, Paul changed the way baseball was viewed within the community.

The Diablos became affiliated with the Los Angeles Angles from 1974 to 1981, and the Diablos became the first AA Baseball team to ever draw 300,000 fans in a single season. From 1981 to 1999, the Diablos were an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers franchise.

During Paul's reign at the El Paso Diablos, the sport was revolutionized to include family entertainment and ultimately, became a nationwide model of what minor league baseball should look like.

Jim Paul continued to run the El Paso Diablos until 1999 when he sold the team to Brett Sports and Entertainment.
