Merida, Yucatan — After an exhausting pair of hard-win series against two Northern Division rivals, the Leones return to Kukulcan Alamo Park today to face the Rieleros de Aguascalientes.

For the next three days, the Leones have a special “Subscriber Series” offer for fans with a Rugiabono season pass, plus two-for-one offers, “Ladies Night” on Wednesday and children admitted for free.

The Leones are at the top of the South Division thanks to tight pitching combined with strong batters in the lineup, particularly Leo Heras, Jonathan Jones, Luis Juárez and Alex Liddi.
