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."
