Dodgers, Padres will play in Mexico in May

The Dodgers- Padres series is the first of six series Major League Baseball plans to play in Mexico over the next four seasons.

The Padres will serve as the "home" team during the series, the third for the league in Monterrey and the first regular-season contests in Mexico in 19 years. They opened the 2014 season with a two-game set against Arizona in Sydney, Australia. Los Angeles also played a two-game exhibition series in Mexico in 1991.

The Dodgers and Padres will meet in Monterrey, Mexico for a three-game series from May 4-6, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. An announcement is expected Monday.

In a news release sent out by Major League Baseball, Padres COO Erik Greupner said: "As a team with a bi-national fan base and reach that extends into Baja California and throughout Mexico, we are excited to once again play regular season games in Monterrey and help grow the popularity of our great game". In game three of that series, one of the more memorable moments in Padres lore occurred.
