Another Major League Baseball spring training game has been added to the schedule for Kino Stadium, the Pima County Sports and Tourism Authority announced Monday.

The Milwaukee Brewers will play the Seattle Mariners on Friday, March 16. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m.

"Milwaukee and Seattle are cold weather climates and we look forward to seeing fans from those regions visiting Tucson for the game,” said Tom Tracy, chairman of the Pima County Sports and Tourism Authority, in a press release.

The game is the third MLB spring training game set for Tucson in March. The San Diego Padres will battle the Colorado Rockies at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday, March 18, and the Chicago White Sox will play the Los Angeles Dodgers at 1:05 p.m. on Friday, March 23.

"The Mariners-Brewers matchup is a great addition to Tucson’s spring training lineup at Kino Stadium," said Mike Feder, Tucson Padres president and general manager, in the press release.
