MLB London Series Set for June 2019

New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres

The games will mark the first time the MLB has scheduled games in Europe and the league underlined its intention to "establish a long-term footprint in the city".

The league announced today that a pair of games will be playing in Europe's largest city next summer and it'll be a great matchup as well.

Baseball will be coming to London when the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox face each other in two regular-season games at the Olympic Stadium in 2019. "They are aware they'll be a part of history, but they also know these games count".

One of the fiercest rivalries in sport - the New York Yankees versus the Boston Red Sox - is on the move and heading to London as Major League Baseball flies across the Atlantic to broaden its global reach. "So fans can expect intense competition during what will surely be a great few days in London".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan hailed the "historic agreement" that will see baseball games played at the home of Premier League side West Ham, saying it showed London is the sporting capital of the world.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Glover said, "Being a rapper is super awkward". "I really can do anything". The lyrics go from lighthearted ("I know you wanna party") to heavy (" This is America , police be trippin' now").

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

"We could not be happier that Commissioner Manfred has been able to make this a reality", Red Sox owner John Henry said. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium". These are the two best baseball teams in the world and arguably the two best sporting teams in the world.

The London Stadium was considered as a venue for the 2019 Cricket World Cup, but was not one of the 11 grounds named in April.

London will host three National Football League games this season, with the Philadelphia Eagles facing the Jaguars at Wembley and the Tennessee Titans taking on the Los Angeles Chargers at the same venue, while the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks will face off at the soon-to-be-finished Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 14 October.
