Major League Baseball will make its first trip to Mexico City next year, with the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants playing a two-game series there next season.
This will be the fourth MLB series played in the country, with games also having been played in 1996, 1998, 2018 and 2019.
It will also be the first time Major League Baseball has been played outside of the United States or Canada since 2019, when the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox played a two-game set in London.
MLB also played games in Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia.
SMOKE FORCES POSTPONED NBA GAME IN MEXICO CITY
The Mexico City series is three years away. MLB was supposed to head to Mexico City in 2020, but the COVID-shortened season has ruined the regular schedule. The Padres were originally scheduled to face the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The NBA will also return to Mexico City for the second time when the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat play a game there on December 17. There were two NBA games there in 2019.
The NFL has played three games there and will also return in 2022 with a matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals on November 21.
The matches will be played on April 29 and 30, 2023 at the Alfredo Harp Helu Stadium.
