Yankees-Red Sox Regular-Season Series in London Likely for 2019

Yankees-Red Sox Regular-Season Series in London Likely for 2019

MLB matches have previously been played in Mexico and Japan, nations that have a baseball culture, but the London series would reach a new audience.

As first reported by Bloomberg News, the Yankees and Red Sox are closing in on securing a two-game series during the 2019 regular season that will be played in London.

New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) is not expected to be ready for Opening Day, manager Aaron Boone said on Monday. I worked on that and I am ready to go, " said Sabathia, who worked five innings and threw 75 pitches.

It also helps that both teams already have partnerships with English Premier League clubs; owner of the Red Sox, John Henry, is also the man in charge of Liverpool F.C., while the Yankees do business with current EPL leaders Manchester City.

London has been a popular global destination for basketball and American football, with both the NBA and NFL hosting annual games in the city. June is the only time the building is available for baseball.

Khan has been involved with America's pastime for the better part of two years now and has made his intentions known of bringing Major League Baseball games to London.

It's worth noting that major-league players never seem super jazzed about disrupting their routines to play overseas and that a mid-season series could bug them even more, but the option to play games abroad is written into the collective bargaining agreement, so they'll just have to deal with it. They won 12-6 at home to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday, and will travel to face the Tampa Bay Rays on 29th March.

"I think it would be a lot of fun, to be honest", Yankees first baseman Greg Bird said.

The Red Sox played an exhibition series in Montreal prior to the 2017 season, but haven't been overseas for a series since playing the Athletics in Tokyo in 2008.

Additional regular-season games were played at Monterrey in 1996 (San Diego-Mets); and at San Juan in 2001 (Toronto-Texas), 2003-04 (a total of 43 Montreal home games) and 2010 (Mets-Florida Marlins).
