Red Sox, Yankees To Face Off In London In 2019

New York Yankees Gleyber Torres drips with ice water after teammates doused him with a bucket of it after Torres hit a ninth-inning walk-off three-run home run in a baseball game against the Cleveland Indians in New York Sunday

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will play a pair of games on June 29-30, 2019, at London Stadium, the site of the 2012 Olympics, bringing baseball's biggest rivalry to the United Kingdom.

Britain will now join other global venues to have hosted regular-season games, along with Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia. Three more National Football League games are scheduled for this year, including one at Tottenham Hotspur's new north London soccer stadium. "So fans can expect intense competition during what will surely be a great few days in London".

"We hope this series will be the beginning of a relationship with London that persists and a continuation of increasing exposure for Major League Baseball in Europe". "All the hard work has paid off".

Regardless of the success of the MLB's foray to London, two more matches have already been slated for 2020 - potentially involving different teams - as Manfred continues his push to expand baseball's footprint beyond the confines of the US.

At 25-9, the Sox have the best record in Major League Baseball but are only one game better than the 24-10 Yankees, who have been hot as a pistol and winners of nine of their last 10 and six in a row. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

"I've never been to London, so I'm looking forward to that", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. This series will surely be the most significant worldwide event to date for Major League ball. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium", he added. "London Stadium has a track record of successfully delivering major global events, moving from Premier League Football and both worldwide and domestic showpiece rugby fixtures to hosting some of the biggest names in music". Every year we fight for the division championship.
