SAN ANTONIO – When the San Antonio Missions baseball team announced it would be changing its name to "The Flying Chanclas" for nine games this season, fans went wild.
The hats and T-shirts are so popular, most of the items are on back order until May.
Now, enter the Flying Chanclas Fiesta medal. It might be one of the greatest pairings of all time.
On Wednesday, The San Antonio Missions tweeted pictures of both the Flying Chanclas medal and the Missions medal. The Chanclas medal sells for $12; the Missions medal is $10. Both are being sold at Wolff Stadium. It doesn't look like you can buy them through the Missions website; however, if you're willing to wait for back-ordered items, you can find other Flying Chanclas gear online.
The name change is part of Minor League Baseball's “Copa de la Diversión,” or “Fun Cup.” The team will wear the Flying Chanclas uniforms on Thursdays throughout the season starting in August.
