The logo of the Liga Nacional Puertorriqueña: a big sky-blue circle, bordered in red and white, surrounding a smaller circle of darker blue with white borders, superimposed on which is a red-and-white nautical star that hosts the acronym "LNP" in black block letters.

150 years of the best baseball in the universe—all in one place.

The logo of the Cafeteros de Maricao: a white "M" in quirky font bordered in black and then orange, on a brown circle bordered in dark brown and white.

Cafeteros de Maricao

Maricao Coffee Growers

Maricao is one of Puerto Rico’s most sparsely-populated municipalities, and yet, in the era of the Republic, it would be one of the island’s most important centers for coffee production, as well as a haven for much of the interesting flora and fauna native to the island.

Mascot: Tazastre

(taza “mug” + desastre “disaster”)

Tazastre, the mascot of the Cafeteros de Maricao, is the angriest sentient pure-white coffee mug anyone has ever seen. As it stares at you, it directs attention away from the four dark brown coffee beans sitting inside of it, three of which are (as you might expect) very, very awake, one of which is wearing a straw hat. The last one, despite being a coffee bean in a coffee mug, is somehow fast asleep, with a red bandana tied around its neck.
