The Diablos Rojos del México is the professional baseball team representing Mexico City in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB as per its Spanish initials). They are the team with the most titles obtained in the league (a total of 15) – and of any professional sport in Mexico for that matter (along with Naranjeros de Hermosillo in the Pacific Mexican League). It was founded in 1940 by the businessman Salvador Lutteroth and coach Ernesto Carmona under the name Rojos del México. Two years later, in 1942, Los Rojos were losing a game 7-13 and in the ninth inning they impressively came back scoring seven runs leaving the rival in the dust. An astonished, Basilio ‘Brujo’ Rosell exclaimed: “These Rojos play like devils (diablos)”; and that is how the name was born to which they are known by today. The Mexican businessman Alfredo Harp Helú is the teams President since 1994, whose base is in the Estadio “Foro Sol” with a seating capacity of 25,000 people. The Diablos Rojos del México has had the privilege to have such legendary players as: Nelson Barrera, Alfredo Ortiz, Héctor Espino, Ramón Arano, Daniel Fernández, Miguel Ojeda José Luis Sandoval, among others, with various marks in the MBL. Apart from having been coached by manager Benjamín “Cananea” Reyes (the Mexican manager with the most titles (6) in the league), the last title obtained by the scarlet club was in 2008 by defeating Sultanes de Monterrey in five matches.
