Padres, Dodgers to face off in Mexico next season

Padres, Dodgers to face off in Mexico next season

Sick and on an IV, recent Padres Hall of Fame inductee Ken Caminiti placed himself in the lineup, ate a Snickers bar for energy, and hit two home runs in the first three innings to propel his team to victory. It's the first of six series to be played in Mexico over the next six seasons, with other plans for games in Asia and Great Britain, according to the Los Angeles Times. Colorado beat San Diego 8-2 there in Major League Baseball's season opener on April 4, 1999, and the Padres won two of three games against the New York Mets from August 16-18, 1996.

"I'm extremely excited about returning home to Mexico to play a series against my former team, the Padres", said Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

The latest series in Monterrey replaces a three-game set that had been scheduled for Petco Park.

According to the Los Angeles Times, an official announcement will come Monday. In game three of that series, one of the more memorable moments in Padres lore occurred.

This will mark MLB's first games played outside of North America since 2014.

Four years after opening the regular season in Australia, the Dodgers will be going south of the border again in 2018 - but not almost as far south this time. "The Dodgers have always been at the forefront of growing the game of baseball internationally and this trip reinforces this commitment while at the same time giving our many fans in Mexico a chance to see us compete". Major League Baseball plans to conduct a series in Mexico in each of the next six years.

There is another opening in the Dodgers' front office after Alex Anthopoulos was named the Atlanta Braves' new executive vice president and general manager Monday.
