[edit] Team History

In 2007, the Tigres de la Angelopolis relocated to Cancun, Quintana Roo to become the Tigres de Quintana Roo . Cancun had been without a team since the departure of the Langosteros de Cancun after the 2005 season, whereas the Tigres were competing with the Pericos de Puebla for the affection of fans in the Angel City of Puebla. The team's history dates back to the Tigres de México who played in the Mexican capital from 1955 to 2003 and were traditionally one of the Mexican League's powerhouse teams.

In their first season in Cancun, the Tigres made the playoffs with the League's fourth-best overall record but lost in the first round to the Leones de Yucatan. The offensive stars were Javier Robles, who hit .340 with 13 home runs and 65 RBI, while Jorge Vázquez hit .323/.383/.605, with a team-leading 17 home runs and Sergio Contreras hit .300 with 29 stolen bases. Sergio's twin Albino Contreras hit .316/.393/.497. Former Major Leaguer Matías Carrillo hit .301 with 6 home runs in 75 games. On the mound, the star was Pablo Ortega (12-3, 2.38); Adrian Manzano saved 19 games and Antonio Osuna added 12 saves with a sparkling 1.61 ERA in 22 games in relief. Another former Major Leaguer, Francisco Cordova, was 2-3 with a 4.31 ERA in 13 starts. Enrique Reyes was the manager and Andres Mora was on the coaching staff.

They won titles in 2011 and 2013, with Carrillo now as manager. In 2011, the offense was led by Doug Clark (.315/.423/.579, 21 HR, 67 R), Sergio Contreras (.347/.435/.525, 73 R), Iker Franco (.276/.367/.508, 23 HR, 74 RBI) and Carlos Sievers (.266/.395/.458, 16 HR, 65 RBI) while the top hurlers were Ortega (10-3, 3.29), Sandy Nin (8-4, 24 Sv, 2.80) and Seth Etherton (3-3, 3.58). In 2013, the top hitters were Jorge Cantú (.270/.368/.617, 31 HR, 74 RBI), Adan Amezcua (.294/.402/.511), Karim García (.292/.342/.546, 18 HR) and Clark (.319/.416/.465). The ace pitcher and closer were both Cubans in the form of Amauri Sanit (12-4, 3.27) and Hassan Peña (4-2, 24 Sv, 3.33). Albino Contreras was named MVP of the finals.
