The Sultanes de Monterrey (English: Monterrey Sultans) are a Triple-A Minor League Baseball team of the Mexican League based in Monterrey, Mexico. They compete in the Northern Division.

History[edit]

The team in 1939 was called Carta Blanca

The team was formed on May 20, 1939, as Carta Blanca (a local beer brand, owned by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma which owned the team). The team was renamed to Industriales in 1942. In 1948 it was renamed again to their current name, Sultanes.[1] The team was also known as the Gray Ghosts. The team won its first championship in 1943. In total, the Sultanes have collected nine championships (1943, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1962, 1991, 1995, 1996, and 2007), including three straight (1947–1949) under the legendary Cuban manager Lázaro Salazar. During the seasons from 1989-1994 both the Sultanes and the Industriales played in the Mexican League for Monterrey.[2]

The Sultanes’ home field is the Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey, the largest baseball stadium in Mexico.
