Yes, there's a baseball stadium in Pastita, right around the corner from Embajadoras. And there are basketball games at the University's court -- entrance on the Calzada de Guadalupe.

Sorry for the double reply. Yes, they play games at both places.

Hoping to see some Winter baseball while I was there but although I saw lots of work going on at the stadium on my daily walks by there, no games in January.

I don't know where the schedule is. If you walk by the stadium, you could ask. At different times of the day I see teams playing there. Same with the basketball court at the university[/i]. Sorry, I don't know more.

I've been trying to follow the baseball situation, and there's been a couple of articles about it a week in AM. Here's the most recent one: http://www.am.com.mx/guanajuato/llamanae...91951.html.

My understanding, with my limited Spanish, is that the organization that runs the Municipal League has been in disarray, and that some of the teams that have been in this league in the past are not coming back this year.

I also read that to initiate the renovated ballpark, the nearest Mexican League team, Rieleros de Aguascalientes, was going to play a couple of pre-season games there, on March 1 and 9. I just went to the Rieleros site to check on this, and discovered that their site has been hacked. Ugh. But since there hasn't been anything about this in the local press recently, we can assume this isn't happening.

Here's an update from Saturday's AM: http://www.am.com.mx/guanajuato/superdep...l-218.html
What it's about, is they managed to elect a new executive for the Municipal League. Nothing specific about the start of the season, just that they want to get it going in 15 days or so.

Also learned from this newspaper that Fernando Valenzuela played for a Guanajuato team called "Tuzos" very early in his career. At that time (1978), there was a Central League, and Tuzos was one of the teams in it.

Mexico is playing the US tonight at 8 PM CST, and Canada 1:30 PM on Saturday. Any suggestions for a cantina that would be likely to have these games on a big screen?

Mexico had a bad loss to Italy last night; see http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=...b&c_id=mlb

I learned this morning that the place to watch Baseball in GTO is Cantina la Norte?a, by Embajadores. I went there this afternoon. I wouldn't recommend bringing a date to this place, and it's probably a good thing I left before the ninth-inning donnybrook in today's Canada-Mexico game.:dodgy:

I asked the bartender before I left if Sunday's Canada-USA game would be on there, and he said yes. This game is at 1 PM Arizona time, which should mean that it's 2 PM here.

I think you left at the right time. Return on Sunday? Maybe I'll pass on that one! Hard to believe that the Mexican team would embarrass themselves like that after being warned by the Ump. IMHO, the pitcher should be banned forever from that venue, that is just not done. Maybe he knew nothing serious would happen to him and therefore had nothing to lose, but his respect. :s
