(Spanish: Liga Mexicana del Pacífico), known as Liga ARCO Mexicana del Pacífico for sponsorship reasons or simply LMP for its acronym in Spanish, is a professional baseball winter league based in Northern Mexico. LMP is composed of 10 total teams, mostly located in Northwestern Mexico, along the Pacific Coast. The NL and AL were formed in 1876 and 1901, respectively. Beginning in 1971, the champion team represents Mexico in the Caribbean Series held in February, which brings together the professional baseball teams that are champions of the tournaments of the countries that make up the Caribbean Professional Baseball Confederation: Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Panama and Colombia, plus representatives from Curacao and Cuba as guests.

Forerly known as the Pacific Coast League, it was formed by the very first professional teams in the region, under the guidance of the league's first President, Mr. Teodoro Mariscal. In this stage, known as the first stage, the main teams were the Queliteros de Hermosillo, the Venados de Mazatlán, the Ostioneros de Guaymas and the Tacuarineros de Culiacán.Although there were only four teams, but they were of great quality; in fact, some great players from Major League Baseball, as well as players from the famous "Negro Leagues" of the United States participated and were the great protagonists of the games.[5]

After a decade, the league was renamed Liga de Sonora of the Base and the Ball. But not much later, new teams started forming, iplying the return of professional baseball to Sinaloa, thus renaming the league Liga Sinaloa-Sonora de Beisbol Profesional S.A., with the return of the Maztlan Deer and the inaguration of the Culiacan Tomato-pickers.

The sixty eight-game regular season is split in two halves. After each half, the teams are awarded points. The first place team earns ten points, while the last place team earns three and a half points. At the end of the regular season the total amount of points are added up from both halves to determine playoff positioning. The top eight teams advance.


In 1945, a group of people led by Teodoro Mariscal established the Liga de la Costa del Pacífico (English: Pacific Coast League). The league's first season (1945–46) started with four teams: Tacuarineros de Culiacán, Ostioneros de Guaymas, Queliteros de Hermosillo and Venados de Mazatlán. Mariscal was appointed as the league's first president. In 1947 the league expanded with two new teams: Arroceros de Ciudad Obregón and Pericos de Los Mochis.[6][7]

In 1958, only four teams participated, all from the state of Sonora: Rojos de Ciudad Obregón, Rieleros de Empalme, Naranjeros de Hermosillo and Ostioneros de Guaymas. Since all the participant teams were from Sonora, the league changed its name to Liga Invernal de Sonora (English: Sonora Winter League). In 1959, Mayos de Navojoa replaced Ciudad Obregón. In 1962, Ciudad Obregón and Los Mochis returned to the league. In 1965, Mazatlán and Tomateros de Culiacán joined the league, which changed its name for third time to Liga Invernal Sonora-Sinaloa (English: Sonora-Sinaloa Winter League).[6][7]

In 1970, the league changed its name to the current Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (English: Mexican Pacific League) and joined the Confederación de Béisbol Profesional del Caribe (English: Caribbean Professional Baseball Confederation), thus participating for the first time in the 1971 Caribbean Series.[6][7][8]

In 2020, ARCO purchased naming rights to the league, thus it changed its name to Liga ARCO Mexicana del Pacífico.[9] Two teams joined the LMP for the 2020 season: Sultanes de Monterrey, that became the first team to play in the two professional baseball leagues in Mexico, and Algodoneros de Guasave, that returned to the Mexican Pacific League after disappearing in 2014.[10]
