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

But two of the best hitting teams in baseball may find at least one thing to their liking: the dimensions of London Stadium. The press release says the stadium will "take on a baseball configuration for the event", which, well, I would hope so.

"It's also the first time the Red Sox and Yankees have played one another outside of NY or Boston", added Henry, who also co-owns English Premier League side Liverpool. The wall at London Stadium will be between 12 and 14 feet high between the power alleys.

"They are excited about the chance to meet new fans, and showcase the game they love".

The games between the Yankees and Red Sox in London next season will mark the first Major League Baseball regular-season contests to ever be played in Europe.

The NFL has played regular-season games in the capital since 2007, holding 18 games at Wembley and three at Twickenham. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

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.

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

Red Sox owner John W. Henry said his team and the Yankees had been discussing the possibility of playing in London for several years.

Major League Baseball is heading to London. "We look forward to welcoming Major League Baseball, teams and fans to London Stadium for the first year of what we hope to be a fruitful, long term partnership".
