Sultanes de Monterrey (1990–present)[1]

Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey is a baseball stadium in Monterrey, Mexico. It is the home field of the Sultanes Monterrey Mexican League baseball team.[1] It holds 27,000 people,[3] making it the largest baseball stadium in Mexico and the third largest in Latin America.[4] The stadium is located meters away from the Estadio Universitario, the AFAIM stadium (an American football stadium), the Niños Heroes Park and the Niños Heroes Metro station, and not far from the Plaza de Toros Monumental Monterrey "Lorenzo Garza" (Bullring).[5]

The stadium was inaugurated in games starting on 13 July 1990 when Monterrey played host to the World Youth Baseball Championship (for players 16 years old and under).[2][6] The first LMB game was held 20 July 1990 when the Sultanes defeated the Tecolotes de Nuevo Laredo in 12 innings.[2]

In 1991 it hosted some preliminary games during the Pan American Games,[7] although the baseball final series between host Cuba and Puerto Rico was held at Estadio Latinoamericano in Havana.

In August 1996,[8] it also hosted a three game series between the National League's San Diego Padres and New York Mets, marking the first time Major League Baseball was played in Mexico.[9] It was also the site of an Opening Day game between the Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres in April 1999.[10]

It has also hosted several other events such as concerts. Some of the artists that have played at the stadium are the Mexican group Maná and the late Tex-mex singer Selena.[7]
