Diamondbacks Games In Mexico Canceled Because Of Coronavirus


Major League Baseball has called off what was to be its first two regular-season games in Mexico City. Also lost to the new coronavirus was a three-game series in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres were to have played in Mexico on April 18 and 19, and the New York Mets and Miami in Puerto Rico from April 28-30.

Major League Baseball has delayed opening day until mid-May at the earliest because of the virus outbreak.

If the games are rescheduled, they would be at the home teams' ballparks in Phoenix and Miami.
