Feb 5 (Reuters) – The Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins will play an exhibition game in the Dominican Republic before the start of the regular season in 2020, the US baseball league (MLB) announced on Wednesday. March 7, which will be held at the Quisqueya Juan Marichal Stadium in Santo Domingo, will be the first MLB game played in the Caribbean country since 2000, when the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros met in the same venue. “International growth, especially in Latin America, is a priority for many baseball teams,” said Al Avila, manager of the Tigers, in a statement. “It’s really a country that has passionate fans and a rich baseball history,” he added.
