Product Description

ESTADIO NACIONAL

GRB-402

Managua, Nicaragua

Dennis Martínez National Stadium is located in Managua, Nicaragua. It was named after former MLB player Dennis Martínez.

The stadium was built in 1948 and is Nicaragua's national stadium. It is used mainly for baseball but also serves as a venue for concerts, football, religious events and has a capacity of 30,100 people. It is the home stadium of Deportivo Walter Ferretti soccer team.

The stadium has been renamed quite a few times. Originally it was named "El Estadio Nacional" (The National Stadium), after the 1972 earthquake that struck Managua and destroyed 90% of the city, it was rebuilt and renamed after Anastasio Somoza García. When the Sandinistas regained power and overthrew the Somoza political dynasty in 1979 it was again renamed. The Sandinistas renamed it after Rigoberto López Pérez, the man who assassinated Anastasio Somoza García. On November 20, 1998, the 50th anniversary of the founding of the stadium, then-President Arnoldo Alemán issued a decree changing the stadium's name to Estadio Nacional Dennis Martínez. The stadium was renamed in honor of Dennis Martinez, the country's first baseball player to play in Major League Baseball and pitch the 13th perfect game in major league history.
