During the 2020 season, Major League Baseball has decided to branch out hosting games in different satellite locations. The most recent to be announced is, San Juan, Puerto Rico. The New York Mets and Miami Marlins will play a three-game series at Hiram Bithorn Stadium from April 28th to April 30th.

The Mets learned of the news as they set their sights on the postseason, are 16-4 in their last twenty games. Since August has begun they are 9-2 after a recent loss against the Washington Nationals. They will hope to push into the postseason as well as carry success into the 2020 season.
The Marlins are in the midst of a horrific season, joining the Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles at the bottom of the standings. The Marlins are looking to piece things together, or at least try to, using their farm system, with players like Victor Victor Mesa and Victor Mesa Jr. in the farm system there is excitement. Picking up Jazz Chisholm at the deadline will help add more prospects to a farm system that’s hoping for guys to “click” and make that push to the big leagues.
Only time will tell, but, both the Mets and Marlins will make the trip down to San Juan to play a three-game series during the 2020 season. The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins played against each other in the Puerto Rico Series during the 2018 regular season.
