Marlins/Yankees to play spring games in Panama

ORLANDO -- The Marlins are headed to Central America. For two spring training games, that is.

The Marlins are scheduled to play the New York Yankees in a pair of exhibition games in Panama on March 15-16, according to a source with knowledge of the plan.

The Marlins have not yet released their spring schedule. And a trip to Panama won't be their first spring excursion outside the U.S. They traveled to Mexico to face the Houston Astros in a pair of spring games in 2004.
