Red Sox To Play Evil Ones In London During June 2019

Multiple reports indicate that the Red Sox and New York Yankees are very close to a deal that will see them play two regular season games in London, England next June. The series would be played at London Stadium—the home of the West Ham United soccer team of the English Premier League. The stadium—in the eastern part of London— was also host to the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the 2017 Athletics World Championships. The venue also hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games. In 2008, the Red Sox played two regular season games against the Oakland A's in Japan at the start of that season—causing an awkward return to the states to finish out Spring Training. This trip would occur near the middle of the 2019 campaign. Baseball is the only major US professional sport never to have played in Europe. Stay tuned for further details on the series.
