History

The 74 Regiment was one of the founding teams of the circuit, it only participated during one season in the Mexican Baseball League. It was based in Atlixco , Puebla , but played in the state capital. The team was sponsored by General Andrés Zarzosa who was Chief of Military Operations in Puebla. Zarzosa managed to put together a very competitive team with the unknown names of "Javierito" López, "Chucho" Gamiz, Oscar Martínez, "Viejito" Miranda, Jorge Viñas, "Lolo" Correa and they were led by Jesús "Matanzas" Valdez.

In September the team was transferred to San Luis Potosí although it was still under the command of General Zarzosa. At the end of the season, two teams were tied for first place, the 74 Regiment and Club México with 10 wins and 4 losses, for which a final series was played to win three of five games. The first game was lost by 12 races to 1, the second game was won by 5 races to 2, the third game was won again by 19 to 3 and the last game was played in the Franco Inglés Park where 12 races were imposed to 6 to become the historic First Champion of the nascent Mexican Baseball League. The following year the team became the Tuneros de San Luis.[1][2]
