The defending Mexican League champion Saltillo Saraperos will host the Monclova Acereros Tuesday night in the opening game of the 2010 Liga season. The game will be played at Saltillo’s 12,112-seat Estadio de Beisbol Hermanos Serdan, and is the only contest slated for Tuesday night.

Things will get into full swing Wednesday night when all 16 LMB teams will be in action, with teams playing return matches on Thursday to complete their respective two-game home-and-home season opening series. The Liga schedule will revert to its usual three-game series format Friday through Sunday, followed by the traditional Monday off-day.

As in 2009, Mexican League teams will play their 108-game schedules solely against the other seven teams within their own division to save money on travel costs. The Northern Zone consists of Saltillo, Monclova, Monterrey, Mexico City, Reynosa, Laguna, Nuevo Laredo and Chihuahua. The Southern Zone lineup includes Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Campeche, Tabasco, Oaxaca, Puebla, Minatitlan and Veracruz.

No franchises were moved in the offseason.
