Red Sox and Yankees selected for first ever London Series

Boston Red Sox Left Fielder J.D. Martinez And First Baseman Mitch Moreland

When the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox visit London for a two-game series next June, the travel may be a hassle, and beans and toast for breakfast may prove to be an acquired taste.

"They are excited about the chance to meet new fans, and showcase the game they love. So fans can expect intense competition during what will surely be a great few days in London".

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

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "I am absolutely delighted that we have secured this historic agreement for Major League Baseball to come to London in 2019 and 2020".

The Red Sox will be the home team for both games, marking the first time the clubs have met in a city that is not Boston or NY. "All the hard work has paid off". There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

In a tweet on Sunday night, Manchester United thanked the "wider football world" for their messages of support. United's star keeper David de Gea, 27, posted a tweet with two prayer emojis with the words: "Sir Alex".

Khan said: "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.

The rivalry between two of the sport's most successful teams stretches back more than a century and is widely regarded as the most passionate in baseball. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium", he added. Located in the eastern part of the capital, the stadium is now home of Premier League club West Ham United and was also used during the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the 2017 Athletics World Championships.

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