The Padres will play a three-game series with the Mets in Monterrey, Mexico, August 16-19. The series, originally home games for the Padres, was moved in part because of scheduling conflicts with the Republican Convention. The games, the first MLB games to be played outside of the U.S. and Canada, will be played at Monterrey Stadium, a facility with seating capacity of 26,000 (Chuck Johnson, USA TODAY, 2/29). Mets Manager Dallas Green compared the facilities to Triple-A level. Green and Padres Manager Bruce Bochy inspected the park in December (N.Y. POST, 2/29).
