Home to Mexico’s largest baseball park, champion team Monterrey Sultanes and more than 50 Little League networks, Monterrey is the undisputed heart of Mexican baseball, so it seems only fitting that the city would host the Mexican Baseball Hall of Fame (Salon de la Fama del Beisbol).
The Hall of Fame was inaugurated in 1973 and honors over 170 of Mexico’s biggest names, including US-based players like Josh Gibson and Roy Campanella, and recent inductees like All-Star pitcher Teodoro “Teddy” Higuera, pitcher Mercedes Esquer and outfielder Jimmie Collins. Located on the site of the Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma Brewery, Mexico’s oldest brewery, the museum features an interactive baseball exhibition, displaying memorabilia and player’s personal belongings, alongside individual plaques for each player.
The Mexican Baseball Hall of Fame is located in the Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma Brewery on Alfonso Reyes, Monterrey and is open weekdays from 9am-6pm, weekends 10:30am-6pm. Admission is free.
