In 2010 the Cimarrones de Tijuana, or Big Horn Sheep (formerly Los Potros), played in the Golden Baseball League at the 18,000-seat Estadio Béisbol Calimax (formerly the Estadio Nacional de Tijuana), which is located off Boulevard Los Insurgentes near the Otay-Mesa border crossing. The team was inactive at last check due to financial troubles.
Tijuana has a 33,000-seat state-of-the-art fútbol stadium that has been open since 2007. Estadio Caliente is part of the Hipódromo Agua Caliente complex (Blvd. Agua Caliente 12027, tel. 664/682-3110, www.caliente.com.mx , US$20), where the local Club Tijuana team plays.
Founded in 1927 as part of the Agua Caliente Club complex, the Club Campestre Tijuana, or Tijuana Country Club (tel. 664/681-7855, toll-free U.S. tel. 888/217-1165, www.tijuanacountryclub.com ), off Boulevard Agua Caliente has a 6,800-yard, par-72, 18-hole course. The Mexican Open is played here on occasion. Greens fees are US$18–45. The club has a driving range and pro shop and offers golf lessons.
Unidad Deportiva CREA (Cañon Aviacíon at Via Rápida Oriente s/n, tel. 664/215-9000, 7 A.M.–9 P.M. Mon.–Sat.) is a public sports complex in the Zona Río with a six-lane, 25-meter pool and diving pool. Athletes from around the world come to practice for marathons.
Turista Libre (www.turistalibre.com ) offers a refreshing alternative to the usual Tijuana tourist scene. Day trips focusing on the “overlooked and underrated” visit local museums, parks, dive bars, and the occasional pro soccer games at the Estadio Caliente.
