Today's game takes place in Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I dug up some info on it and it turns out to be the same place the Montreal Expos played a slew of their "home games" before they became the Nationals, in fact the dimensions were changed to match Olympic Stadium on Montreal with a 404 foot dead center and 325 down either line. No idea if that's still how it is after all these years though. Also the Jackson Five performed there in 1973 so that's cool.

In fact it took a lot of repairs after the devastating hurricanes to get it back into playable condition. Many workers still don't have power at their own homes but came to work everyday to get the place ready for these two games. Grounds crews are straight up bad-asses.
