The New York Yankees have exciting plans for March as they prepare for the upcoming MLB season. The team is set to play a pair of split-squad exhibition games against the Mexican team Diablos Rojos at Mexico City’s Alfredo Harp Helú Stadium on March 24 and 25.
In addition to their Mexico City adventure, the Yankees have other spring training games lined up. On March 24, they will face the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, Florida, followed by a game against the New York Mets in Tampa, Florida, on March 25.
The Yankees are gearing up for their season opener, scheduled for March 28 in Houston. This thrilling Mexico trip was officially announced by the team on Friday, marking a significant return for the Yankees.
The Diablos Rojos, on the other hand, will kick off their season on April 11.
This upcoming Mexico City series holds historical significance as it marks the Yankees’ return to the city for the first time since March 1968, when they participated in a two-game exhibition series against the Diablos Rojos. Baseball fans on both sides of the border can look forward to an exciting showdown.
