    Default Dominican Winter Baseball Starts Tonight

    Batter up! Winter baseball starts tonight

    The Dominican Winter Baseball League begins its schedule at the Estadio Quisqueya this evening, Thursday 15 October 2015 when two of the nation's oldest teams n the Tigres Del Licey and the Leones Del Escogido - face off. Jordan Norberto has been chosen by manager Luis Rojas to open the first game of the winter baseball season in the Dominican Republic when the Leones host the Tigres. Manager Luis Rojas, a lifelong member of Escogido, announced his opening-day pitcher during a meeting with a small group of sports reporters at a Santo Domingo restaurant yesterday, Wednesday 14 October 2015. Rojas singled out several of the up-and-coming players who are expected to see action this season. General manager Moises Alou was not present because he was out of the country, but his assistant Jose Gomez said that because of the large size of the Estadio Quisqueya they have chosen many of their reinforcements based on their on-base percentage rather than on their power numbers. Tomorrow evening, Friday 16 October 2015 the Aguilas Cibaenas will meet the Gigantes Del Cibao, last year's champions, and the Estrellas Orientales will play the Toros Del Este.

    Baseball Schedule 2015 - 2016

    http://www.ligadom.com/calendario

    Even if you are not a big fan of baseball the games are a lot of fun. Just watching the fans is entertainment itself. Sip a cold one, drink a cuba libre, eat some pizza and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh, tickets are dirt cheap. My seating preference are seats in sections palco AA.


    Above is schedule for all teams, this is for Licey only.

    We love the Dominican Winter Baseball!!! Lots of fun, lots of fascinating people on and off the field!! Every inning has a dance contest, fun games, meringue and the world's best baseball players actually playing the game itself. Have fun!!

    Went to the opening game Thursday night. Since I'm a STL Cardinals fan I cheered for the Leones Del Escogido.

    It was a fun experience. The pre game entertainment was great and the fans really get into. Love seeing and going to places that's affordable for a entire family. Beers 75 pesos, 4 chicken fingers with fries 200 pesos, my ticket was 250 pesos section C2. You can sit in the bleachers for 50 pesos I think. They were going crazy in that section.

    A whole different game than USA baseball. I doubt if I would go to a game in the USA if the ticket was free. La rep dom baseball games are a blast.

    Opening night is fantastic. After that most games are played to a half empty house except for Licey vs Aguilas.

    Did you get the tickets in advance or at the box office or scalpers?

    What camera were you using? You always take some nice pics.

    I know you had a good time. You don't need to like baseball to enjoy a day at the stadium in la rep dom. Main thing try to go to the major games that is when you will have the most fun. About five years ago I was at the Licey game when they won the championship. I never saw nothing like it in my life and probably never will see anything like it again. Talk about laughing and having fun................. The memories.......

    I edited previous post to ask about your camera. They some good shots.
