Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Dodgers to open 2014 in Australia
The Arizona Diamondbacks will open their 2014 season against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Sydney, Australia.
According to the Telegraph, the series will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground on March 22 and 23.
In a $13 million coup for the state government, the opening series of the MLB will be held at the SCG on Saturday March 22 and Sunday March 23 - the first time a competitive US baseball fixture will be held in Australia and only the sixth time one has been staged outside America.
The games have been described as the biggest internationally recognised event in this country since the 2003 Rugby World Cup final and come exactly 100 years after the Chicago White Sox played against NSW at the SCG.
