Citi Field To Host Dominican Winter League Series In Less Than 2 Weeks


Citi Field will host the first-ever Dominican Winter League (LIDOM) Series between rivals Los Tigres del Licey and Las Aguilas Cibaenas in a three-game weekend series from Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12.

"The Titans of the Caribbean," as this series is termed, will include the two winningest teams in the history of the Dominican Winter League. The Tigres won their 23rd championship last season, while Aguiles took their 22nd title in 2021.

All proceeds from ticket sales for the event will benefit Sports Dreams Foundation, a nonprofit organization that focuses on benefiting youth baseball and similar activities in the Dominican Republic and United States. It serves a variety of purposes with the goal of improving the lives of young people, fostering the development of a community, and promoting values through sports.
