BY foxsports • January 13, 2016

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that the San Diego Padres and Houston Astros will play two Spring Training games at Fray Nano in Mexico City, Mexico on March 26th and 27th.

This will mark the first time since 2004 that MLB will be played in Mexico City, and will be the first time since 2002 that the Padres played south of the border.

In a release by Major League Baseball, Chief Operating Officer Tony Petitti said, "Major League Baseball is thrilled to be back in Mexico City, and we are particularly excited to showcase two of our Clubs that play in such close proximity to Mexico. As we further strengthen the relationship between MLB and Mexico, it is our hope that we can continue to present our game and its bright young stars to the fans of our southern neighbor for years to come."
