Padres return to Mexico for spring-training game
SAN DIEGO (AP) _ The San Diego Padres will return to Mexico to play a spring-training game against the Colorado Rockies.
The game will be played March 16 at Culiacan in the General Angel Fores STadium, the 14,500-seat home of the Mexican Pacific League’s Tomateros. It will be the first spring training game in Mexico since 1993.
Last year, the Padres played the New York Mets in the first-ever regular season games in Mexico. The Padres took two out of three games in the August series at Monterrey.
The Padres also are planning to play two regular season games against the Houston Astros at Honolulu’s 50,000-seat Aloha Stadium. The games would be the first regular-season major league games in Hawaii.
