Dominican Republic: Spectator Sports
A Land of Contrasts
Spectator sport in the Dominican Republic means only one thing: Baseball. Baseball is incredibly popular across the nation, and is the national sport. Teams come from all over the country, but the best stadia are in the main cities. Santo Domingo is a hotbed for baseball, and tickets can be purchased to watch matches with great ease. A great way to see the local baseball teams on a budget is to buy tickets for the winter season warm-ups around December, where the best teams strut their stuff in so called ‘friendly’ matches. The passion of the Dominican fans, however, would suggest that they are as hotly contested as any competitive match.
