Estadio Francisco I. Madero is a stadium in Saltillo, Mexico. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the Saraperos de Saltillo.[1][4] It holds 16,000 people, and features a video screen measuring 14 meters high by 22 meters wide (46 feet high by 72 feet wide).[1] The stadium is named after Coahuila native Francisco I. Madero who served as President of Mexico from 1911 to 1913.
