Chivas USA takes a page from the past in signing 'Bofo' Bautista

Adolfo "Bofo" Bautista, one of the most accomplished players in the recent history of Mexican soccer club Chivas of Guadalajara, will try to bring some history to the franchise's sister club in the U.S. after signing Tuesday with Chivas USA.

Bautista, 34, led Chivas to two Mexican league finals -- scoring the goal that beat Tolcua in the 2006 Apertura final -- as well as to the championship game of the 2010 Copa Libertadores.

A forward, he also played 38 games, scoring 11 goals, for the Mexican national team from 2002 to 2010.

Bautista was signed as a free agent via discovery from second-tier Atletico San Luis. Before that he had an uneventful stay with Queretaro.

Bautista, who has flirted with retirement in recent seasons, has played just 15 games, scoring once, since leaving Guadalajara during 2011.
