ORLANDO -- Major League Baseball International and a Puerto Rican businessman are close to reaching an agreement to have the New York Mets and the Florida Marlins play some regular season games in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
"We are planning something for July, but we're still working out the details," said MLBI Latin America assistant Angelica Pimentel.
Businessman Antonio Muñoz, who brought two rounds of the World Baseball Classic to San Juan in 2006 and 44 games of the Montreal Expos between 2003 and 2004, said the negotiation is in the last stages, according to local newspaper El Nuevo Dia.
"We are satisfied because this is the kind of entertainment that we want to bring to Puerto Rico," said Muñoz, owner of MB Sports.
