“It was something the Colorado Rockies came to us and they said hey what can we do to partner with you in the state of New Mexico. They’ve been victimized by wildfires throughout Colorado as well, so they wanted to do something to show their partnership throughout the state of New Mexico, so we thought this was an ideal fit,” said Isotopes General Manager John Traub.
Traub continued by saying that the community has supported them for the last 20 years and their organization wants to continue to support not only the local community but the entire state.
