Estadio Universitario Beto Ávila is a stadium in Veracruz, Mexico.[1] It is primarily used for baseball and serves as the home stadium for the Rojos del Águila de Veracruz.[1] The stadium has a capacity of 7,782 people.[2] Prior to this stadium they played at the Parque Deportivo Veracruzano.

The stadium is named to honor Veracruz native Beto Ávila who played for the Cleveland Indians and a few other Major League Baseball teams before returning to play his last year (1960) as a player for the Tigres del México.[3] After retiring from active play Beto Ávila worked to further organize and advance the sport of baseball in Mexico.[3]
