The largest baseball stadium in Puerto Rico, Hiram Bithorn Stadium is located in the northern sector of San Juan. The stadium, built in 1962, was named after the first Puerto Rican-born player in the Major Leagues, right-hander Hiram Bithorn, who played for the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox from 1942-47.

Hiram Bithorn has the distinction of being one of only a few facilities outside the United States and Canada to host a regular-season MLB game, playing host to the 2001 opener between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays. The Montreal Expos played a portion of their home schedule at Hiram Bithorn throughout the 2003-04 seasons, showcasing the sport in front of nearly 530,000 fans over the course of 43 games. Most recently, the then-Florida Marlins hosted the New York Mets in a three-game set at the stadium in July 2010.

Hiram Bithorn has hosted pools in both the 2006 and '09 World Baseball Classics. In the '06 tournament, the stadium was the only venue to host more than one round during the inaugural event, with both Rounds 1 and 2 being played there. In the '09 Classic, Hiram Bithorn Stadium played host to Pool D in the first round. The stadium accommodated six games played by four powerhouse teams: Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Over the course of 18 Classic games, Hiram Bithorn Stadium has entertained over a quarter million passionate baseball fans cheering for their home countries and favorite players.
