The Colorado Rockies and Houston Astros will open the 2024 regular season in Mexico City, Mexico, on April 28-29, and the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets will play in London, England, on June 9-10.

However, contrary to MLB’s expectations, the “baseball dead zone” of Paris didn’t get much traction.
In the end, there were even reports in the US that the Paris series was canceled.
