This year’s Mexico Series between the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres was a hit.
The two teams clashed in a beautiful new venue and played two very exciting games.
Saturday was an offensive explosion, while Sunday’s game was a closer affair.
After the conclusion of this year’s Mexico Series, there wasn’t information about what next year’s edition will entail, until today.
According to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, the Houston Astros and Colorado Rockies will face off in the Mexico Series in 2024.
Rosenthal notes that the series is tentatively scheduled for Mexico City at the moment, but that it could change.
The Astros and Rockies will play in next year’s regular-season series in Mexico, tentatively scheduled again for Mexico City, sources tell me and @Chandler_Rome.

The last time the Mexico Series took place was in 2019, when the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals squared off in a brief two-game series.
That series took place in Monterrey.
This year’s Mexico Series ended in a two-game Padres sweep.
Still, it’s an exciting opportunity to grow the game and allow more teams to expand their international reach.
And Mexico City is a perfect place for some baseball.
Baseball is popular in Mexico, and several Mexican-born players have made their impact on the game.
With the new schedule being more balanced and teams playing each other at least once during the season, the Mexico Series is a great opportunity to expand the reach of the game and grow its international presence.
Next year, the Rockies and the Astros will have that opportunity.
The series could return to Mexico City, or potentially be played in a different location in the country.NEXT: MLB Insider Points Out Hidden Gem With Orioles
