fans, and we are proud to offer them live and exclusive coverage for the fourth
year in a row,” said David Sternberg, executive vice president and general
manager of Fox Sports en Español. “We’re confident that the combination
of our Mexican League matches and our in-depth coverage of the league via Jorge
