MEXICO: NEVER REALLY BEEN THERE, BUT THEY'D SURE LIKE TO GO
Published August 15, 1996
The Padres-Mets series in Monterrey, Mexico, will start Friday and will be the first regular season major league games ever played outside the USA or Canada. The game will be played at 26,500-seat Monterrey Stadium, and tickets, ranging from $4 to $17, are expected to be sold out. The game is largely seen as "preview of major league expansion to Mexico." MLBPA Associate Gen Counsel Gene Orza: "It's only a question of when, no it. You can take that one to the bank" (Milton Jamail, BASEBALL WEEKLY, 8/14 issue). CNBC's Sue Herera noted players have been asked to stay in their hotel rooms as much as possible after the kidnapping of Japanese executive Mamoru Konno in Tijuana (CNBC, 8/14).
