The Mets' series against the Marlins that was to take place in Puerto Rico from April 28-30 has been canceled and will not be rescheduled, it was announced Thursday.
With the MLB regular season not starting until at least the second week of May due to coronavirus, it was already known that the Puerto Rico series would not be played. But it has now be called off entirely.
The series had been set to take place at Hiram Bithorn Stadium, as the league planned to head to Puerto Rico for the second time in the past three seasons.
Playing internationally is something the Mets have been a part of for years.
The first international regular season games played were between the Mets and Padres back in 1996, when they went to Monterrey, Mexico. The Mets were also in Tokyo, Japan in 2000 with the Cubs to play in the first games outside of North America.
