MANCHESTER, N.H. – In the past, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats have been the New Hampshire Primaries and the New Hampshire Mountain Men. This season, they’ll be getting yet another name.
Today, the Fisher Cats announced that on four nights this summer, they will become “Gatos Feroces de New Hampshire as part of Major League Baseball’s Copa De La Diversion or “Fun Cup” initiative.
Joining 71 other minor league teams across the country, the Fisher Cats will change their name and wear special uniforms during four Copa De La Diversion games, celebrating the culture and values of Latinx communities with music, specialty food, pregame performances, fireworks and much more.
Their Spanish nickname directly translates to “Ferocious Cats,” a mix of the Fisher Cats’ nickname and their motto of “Ferocious Fun,” with a logo honoring Mesoamerican cultures.
“We’ve been looking forward to this unveiling for a long time — I think this is one of the best alternate logos and jerseys we’ve ever had,” said Fisher Cats President Mike Ramshaw. “From the excitement around players like Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to hosting special events like the Liga Latina All-Star Game last year, the Latinx community continues to be a growing part of our fanbase, and we can’t wait to put on a great show with the Gatos Feroces over the course of the season.”
