Padres Baseball History Playing in Mexico

The Padres played in Mexico in 2018, facing the Dodgers in Monterey. They rallied from an opening no-hitter to take the 3-game series.

In 2019, the San Diego Padres played an exhibition game, the first game at the new Mexico City ballpark, against the Diablos Rojos del México. The Padres won with a final score of 11-2.

But this is the first ever regular season MLB game hosted in Mexico City. It was originally scheduled for 2020. But, well, then 2020 happened. These games are part of what is being called “MLB Tour-Mexico City.” Games are planned for 2024 and 2025 as well but opponents have not yet been determined.

The games in Mexico count as home games for the Padres. Read more about the Padres’ Mexican connection.
