SYDNEY (AP) — Major League Baseball dismissed a report that the Los Angeles Dodgers could open the 2014 season in Australia.

"We are not currently exploring the possibility with the Dodgers or any team to play in Australia," Pat Courtney, MLB's senior vice president of public relations, said Wednesday.

Australian promoters told the Sydney Morning Herald they were working on a deal that could have the Dodgers open with a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

MLB opened its season at Tokyo in 2000, 2004, 2008 and this year, at Monterrey Mexico, in 1999, and at San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2001.
