MLB's biggest rivals to face off in two-game series in London

MLB's biggest rivals to face off in two-game series in London

Mr Manfred said: "The stadium infrastructure in this city gives Major League Baseball every opportunity to put on a first-class event".

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY.

Manfred said: "We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball".

The big announcement comes as the two teams begin a three game series at Yankee Stadium tonight.

"They are excited about the chance to meet new fans, and showcase the game they love". The Red Sox will be the home team, not that it really matters.

"London was a target for us regardless of either football or basketball", Manfred was quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

The ugly truth behind Donald Trump's tweet about Don Blankenship
The Weekly Standard reported two internal campaign polls Monday that show Blankenship leading his competitors. Now, 24 hours before West Virginians head to the polls, Donald Trump has finally put his thumb on the scales.

The United Kingdom will follow other worldwide venues that have hosted regular season Major League games, joining Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia. This series will surely be the most significant worldwide event to date for Major League ball.

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world.

Red Sox principal owner John Henry, who also owns Liverpool FC of the Premier League, said that Boston and NY have been talking about playing overseas for some time.

"As a venue, we are immensely proud to be hosting MLB's London Series at London Stadium in 2019", said Graham Gilmore, CEO of London Stadium 185.

The stadium, which hosted the 2012 Olympics and is now home to West Ham, will be reconfigured for baseball, with 55,000 seats in place for the series.

Major League Baseball is set to emulate the NFL as of next year and set up shop in London.
