A bunch of Yaquis de Obregón fans at Tuesday night’s game. The guy holding the green end of the flag refused to let Eric and I buy our own beers.

This is Chacho. In the summer months, he’s the mascot of Liga Mexicana team, Tigres de Quintana Roo. In the winter, he’s the mascot of Liga Pacifico team, Yaquis de Obregón. I love that he plays winter ball.
