vestimenta de Tlaloc, dios de la lluvia, relacionado con las dinastias reales.En las cabeceras de la
cancha hay nichos donde posiblemente estaban las esculturas de los dioses patronos del juego. El Juego en su interior debió estar decorado con piedras cortadas y labradas, pero durante la época azteca fue saqueado. En la esquina suroeste todavía se puede observar parte de una lápida grabada con un jugador en la que ahora solo se reconocen los pies.Es el más pequeño de los juegos excavados.Pie de dibujos:Vista superiorMarcador del Juego de Pelota
English:Ball Court 1A warrior found here was dressed in garments characteristic of Tlaloc, the rain god, who was associated with royal dynasties.On the structures at the ends of the court there are niches that possibly held sculptures of the patron gods of the game. In the interior, the ball court was probably decorated with carvings on cut stones, but the site was looted during the period of the Aztec domination. In the southwest corner it is still possible to view part of the carving on a ceremonial stone; only the player's feet are recognizable. This is the smallest of the ball courts that have been excavated.
