Albuquerque baseball history

Baseball in Albuquerque dates all the way back to 1880 when the first baseball team, the Browns, was formed.  In 1915, the first professional team, the Albuquerque Dukes, was established, followed by the Albuquerque Dons in 1932.  After years of many changes and challenges, the Albuquerque Isotopes were created in 2003 and have gained immense popularity ever since, drawing countless fans through its gates to experience the excitement and thrill of a live baseball game.
