2023 Caribbean Series, a luxury baseball stadium


2023 Caribbean Series, a luxury baseball stadium

Caracas, Jan 30 (Prensa Latina) The recently built Isaias 'Latigo' Chavez Stadium, in La Rinconada, is the pride of baseball enthusiasts in Venezuela, and will be enhanced with the start of the 2023 Caribbean Series.

This paradise, named after the late Venezuelan pitcher, is considered the second largest stadium in Latin America, since it has a capacity for nearly 40,000 baseball fans, only surpassed by the Latin American Stadium in Havana.

A special feature of this sports venue are the blue chairs that adorn the five floors that make up this mega structure, and a giant screen to delight the fans in the stands.

The artificial turf, 15 elevators and LED lighting are other new features of this state-of-the-art stadium, which will host 21 of the 32 games to be played in this Caribbean Series.

It also has a museum, and there are plans to install an artificial waterfall in its gardens to pay tribute to Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world.

The stadium is next to the Poliedro de Caracas, the Rinconada Racetrack and the future Venezuelan National Soccer Stadium in the so-called ‘Hugo Chavez’ Park, south of the Libertador municipality and the Capital District, and west of the Caracas metropolitan area. Those who dream of hitting the ball out of the park will have a difficult task, especially because the center field has is 442 feet from the plate, while the right field is at 351 feet away and the left field at 338, which makes it very favorable for right-handed hitters.

Its official inauguration is scheduled for Thursday, with a concert by popular salsa singer Oscar D’León, after which the Venezuelan team will play against Panama.
