Puerto Rico absolutely loves baseball. Too bad they don't have their own MLB team yet, but hey, apparently we're willing to lend them ours for a weekend.

The AP reports that the Marlins June 28-30th series against the New York Mets will be played in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It'll go down at the Hiram Bithorn Stadium, which also hosted the opening day match-up between the Blue Jays and the Rangers in 2001. It also, thanks in no small part to current Marlins-owner Jeffrey Loria, hosted several Montreal Expos games in the 2003-04 season.

There's currently over 100 natives of the island active in Major League Baseball.
