The biggest baseball following in San Antonio comes from the San Antonio Missons. The Missions are a minor league baseball team affiliated with the San Diego Padres. The Missions play their games out of Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium each season. San Antonio has a rich history with baseball. In 1888, the city was the home of the Texas League, a minor league baseball team that still plays today. Since 1888, San Antonio has been the home to multiple Texas League franchises. The city has only been through brief years without having a baseball team.
The San Antonio Missions’ mascot is called “Ballapeño,” though their logo features San Antonio’s famous Alamo.
