Minor League Baseball fans know that baseball season means it’s time for Copa de la Diversión (or “Fun Cup”) — a season-long event series designed to “connect teams with their local US Hispanic communities.”

For special games and events, the Hillsboro Hops transform into Los Soñadores de Hillsboro — meaning “The Dreamers.” Why? ¡Porque todos somos soñadores!

Copa de la Diversión began in 2017 with four teams in Charlotte, Durham, Visalia, and Las Vegas. The next year, it expanded to 33 teams and added a little competition.

Just be sure you’re representing your team in style.
