Serie del Caribe starts today / 'Estadio Fernando Valenzuela'?

It starts today. Serie del Caribe will be held in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico.

Hanley Ramirez will be playing for the Dominican Republic.

Fernando Valenzuela will throw out the first pitch today and Sunday. He will also be inducted to the 'Serie del Caribe' Hall of Fame. {linked here}

Here's the schedule. 

It will be played at a brand new stadium. It's the debut of 'Estadio Sonora'. There are rumors from Mexico that the stadium will be named 'Estadio Fernando Valenzuela'. {linked here}

Fans of Mexican legend Hector Espino won't be happy since the old stadium was named 'Estadio Hector Espino'.

I've been to that park several times. Great atmosphere. Here's a old picture.

The new park looks similar to the new parks that you might see in Arizona for Spring Training. Here's a video of 'Estadio Sonora'.
