Major League Baseball has been playing games internationally over the last 30 years. They have played over 200 games in 11 countries and territories, “From London, and Japan, to Cuba, Mexico, and Puerto Rico” (MLB.com). This year, eight teams will play four series in four different countries as a part of the 2024 World Tour. I am going to be your tour guide to these series before the tour hits the road, providing you all you need to know about the games.

The 2024 World Tour kicks off with a two-game series in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic between the Red Sox and Rays, on March 9 and 10 during Spring Training. This series will be very exciting to watch as both teams have talented players, some who have even become a part of the pride of the Dominican Republic with the success they have accomplished in the major leagues; Rafael Devers and Bryan Bello on the Red Sox, and Jose Siri on the Rays. You can catch game one of the series on March 9 at 5:05 EST and game two on March 10 at 1:05 EST. 


Next stop on the MLB World Tour kick starts the season with the Los Angeles Dodgers facing off against the San Diego Padres in Seoul, South Korea.

The MLB regular season kicks off with this exciting matchup between two NL West powerhouses. The Dodger’s stacked roster will face off against the Padres superstar talent in South Korea to kick off what will be an exciting season, and an even more exciting race in the NL West. As if this season opening series could not get any more exciting, the Dodgers All Star unicorn Shohei Ohtani said that he expects to be ready to be the DH for the Dodgers for this series. So not only will the Dodgers have their superstars like Freddie Freeman and Mookie Betts in their lineup, but they will also have Ohtani’s power bat ready to square off against the fellow NL West rivals. The Padres however may not be over matched as they have All Star shortstop Xander Bogaerts, two-time Gold Glove winner Manny Machado, and superstar outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. This series will be a must watch! You can catch both games on March 20 and March 21 on ESPN at 6:05 AM EST.


The next stop on our journey through the MLB World Tour takes us to Mexico City, Mexico!

In this final World Tour two game match up, the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets square off in an NL East rivalry series. Pete Alonso and the talented Mets go head-to-head against Bryce Harper and the defending NLDS champion Phillies. The Mets have a great looking roster and the Phillies have been a powerhouse for the last few years. So, this series will be exciting to watch to see what team will come out on top in what could be a race for the division.
