Daddy Yankee is co-owner of Cangrejeros de Santurce in the Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League of Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The Cangrejeros de Santurce, a team of the Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League of Puerto Rico, have as of this Tuesday a new investor and co-owner in the person of reggatonero Daddy Yankee.

The global music icon, entrepreneur and hitmaker will join President Thomas Axon and President Justo Moreno as co-owners of the team, which is based in San Juan and hosts its home games at the Hiram Bithorn Stadium.

“My fans know that baseball is my passion. I grew up in Santurce, so what better way to celebrate where I grew up than to partner with yours, Cangrejeros, to continue promoting our local talent outside of Puerto Rico and inspiring a new generation of young local athletes, ”said Daddy Yankee .

The 2021-2022 season will start this Saturday, November 6 and the Cangrejeros will receive the Carolina Giants at the inauguration.

“The history and importance of the team to Puerto Rico’s proud sports heritage convinced Daddy Yankee that the continuing rebirth of Puerto Rico baseball was something he felt he needed to get involved in,” explained Mr. Axon when inviting Daddy Yankee to become a co-owner of the team.

“The particular history of this team, and the fact that Daddy Yankee grew up playing baseball essentially in the shadow of our stadium in Santurce, were also important in Daddy Yankee’s decision,” added Mr. Moreno.

The Cangrejeros won their last LBPRC title in 2019-20 before the pandemic prevented the Cangrejeros from playing the 2020-21 season.

“This is an exciting time for me, for our League and for our team as we fight to regain our crown in the face of fantastic competition,” said Daddy Yankee.

The team’s roster has included many players who became Major League Baseball Hall of Fame players, including Roberto Clemente, who is named after the entire Puerto Rico professional baseball league.

Daddy Yankee is the third reggaton player to own or co-own a team in professional sports in Puerto Rico.

Bad Bunny and Anuel own the Cangrejeros de Santurce and Capitanes de Arecibo in basketball, and now DY de los Cangrejeros in baseball.
