Puerto Rico’s 2020-2021 Winter Baseball League

The Criolles won the 2020-2021 season!

Though you may not be able to buy "peanuts and cracker jack", a baseball game in Puerto Rico is an economical and fun evening out. Every winter (from November through January), baseball heats up on the island. Not only do we have local players on the teams, but some of the US league players come down to keep in shape and play in their off-season.

So, if you are having baseball withdrawal, catch a game while you’re here — I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Local League & Teams

Puerto Rico Winter Baseball League

For over 70 years, Puerto Rico has had its own baseball league. A number of the local athletes that have played in our league have gone onto bigger things, like the Major and Minor leagues in the States, and other divisions and leagues around the world.

The main professional baseball league in Puerto Rico is the Liga Beisbol Profesional Roberto Clemente (Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League) — @LBPRC on Twitter and LBPRC on Facebook. Previously, the league was called Puerto Rico Baseball League. Before that, the league was called La Liga de Béisbol Profesional de Puerto Rico (Professional Baseball League of Puerto Rico). If you search the internet for info on this league, you’re likely to find it under any/all of those names.

The winners of this league go on to participate in the Caribbean World Series.

2020-2021 Schedule, Teams and Venues

Thanks for always being on top of the informative pile; I would really like to meet you one day. You've done a fabulous job of trying to keep the island's treats and specialties in the public eye during a truly frustrating and daunting time. It's plum loco that the League itself doesn't do a better job of reaching out to the non- Spanish speaking tourist-but let's hope next season we're on the normal track. Stay Healthy and Wishing you the BEST for 2021 AND Beyond!
