Trevor Bauer will take the mound for the Red Devils to face the Yankees in Mexico City

Mexico City. For the New York Yankees, their first trip to Mexico in more than 50 years probably means nothing more than two exhibition games, but for many Mexican fans and the host team, the Red Devils, the visit of the iconic franchise is a A dream come true.

The Yankees played in Mexico in 1968 when they split a two-game exhibition series at the now-defunct Delta Park.

Red Devils management said they hoped to have the opportunity to do it again after that, but it wasn’t until Omar Minaya was hired as senior advisor for baseball operations with the Yankees last year that the games became a reality.

“Alfredo (Harp Helu, the owner of the Diablos) is a very good friend of Omar Minaya and that drove everything,” said Othon Diaz, team president. “We let them know how much it would mean to us to have them here again and they agreed.”
