MLB News: Everything you need to know about the Caribbean Series 2023: Where will it be played?

One of the biggest and most exciting baseball events of the year is soon going to be getting underway and fans cannot wait to see the stars in action.

In this competition, the professional baseball teams that are champions of the tournaments of the countries that make up the Caribbean Confederation of Professional Baseball will face each other: Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Panama and Colombia, plus the representatives of Curacao and Cuba as guests.

Where will the Caribbean Series 2023 be played?

The tournament is played somewhere different in the region every time and this year, it will be played in Venezuela, specifically at the Estadio La Rinconada in Caracas and the Estadio Forum in La Guaira. It will start on February 2 and will end on February 10.

The opening day of the 65th edition of the Caribbean Series underwent slight adjustments after the Caribbean Confederation of Professional Baseball (CBPC), the Tournament Director and the Confederation of Professional Ballplayers of the Caribbean (CONPEPROCA) endorsed the request made by the Organizing Committee of the event.

This decision, announced on January 13, was made in order to favour the development of a spectacular opening ceremony that will mark a milestone in the history of the Caribbean Series, without affecting the starting times of the games of that day.

Another aim of this change is to keep the turf at La Rinconada stadium fresh for as long as possible. It will start at 18:45 local time.

On the opening day, the schedule is as follows:

Estadio Forum La Guaira

  • Cuba vs Curacao, 10:30 AM
  • Colombia vs Puerto Rico, 3:00 PM

Estadio La Rinconada

  • Mexico vs Dominican Republic, 12:00 PM
  • Opening Ceremony 6:45 PM
  • Venezuela vs Panama, 8:30 PM

Colombia’s Caimanes de Barranquilla are the defending champions after winning last year’s Caribbean Series after defeating the Dominican Republic’s Gigantes del Cibao.
