I don't know where my head was when this was announced last summer, but following the success of the Dodgers-Padres series played in Monterrey last May, Major League Baseball decided to add four more games to be played in that city this season. Additionally, there were two spring training games scheduled in Monterrey in March. I was almost certain I had started a thread about it, but I could find none, so I'm posting for the record as MLB continues to promote the game SOTB and in other countries as well.

The first pair of games was a Reds-Cardinals set played last weekend. The next two will be played Cuatro y Cinco de Mayo, as was the case with the Padres-Dodgers series last year. Those two will involve the Angels and Astros--two teams with major Latino fan bases.

I was not sure how they chose the teams (Cardinals & Reds) but I am glad the Astros & Angels will be facing each other. I think it is a great idea to keep showcasing baseball in Mexico with such passionate fans.
