Mets and Marlins To Play Series In Puerto Rico
Brian Costa of the Star-Ledger, is reporting that the Mets and Marlins are close to announcing that they will play a three-game series in San Juan, Puerto Rico, next season. This is according to another report in the Sun-Sentinel.
The series was originally scheduled to be played in Miami from June 28-30.
It will instead be held at Hiram Bithorn Stadium, which was host to the World Baseball Classic in 2006 and 2009.
The stadium has approximately 18,000 seats, with field dimensions of 325 feet down the left field line, 325 feet down the right field line and 404 feet to center field. The fences are 8 feet high.
Brian Costa also adds that the Mets would be a major draw because of their Puerto Rican players: Carlos Beltran, Pedro Feliciano, Angel Pagan, Omir Santos, Alex Cora and — if they re-sign him — Carlos Delgado.
It should be a fun for the players and fans alike, and I bet the atmosphere will be electrifying for all three games despite the small capacity.
