Las Amazonas de Yucatán!

A storied stadium in Mexico hosted its first-ever women’s softball game and BOLT was very excited to attend!

Around 15,000 spectators gathered at the Kukulcán stadium in Mérida, Yucatán, for an exhibition game between the Natividad de Sucilá team and the Amazonas de Yaxunah, made up of Indigenous women who play barefoot.

Natividad won 14-12.
What they’re saying: “We’re not really rivals — we are all women looking to prove we can do this, too,” said María Domínguez, a member of the Natividad team.

The event was lots of fun and filled with family activities.
