Jackie Bradley, Jr. And CC Sabathia To Promote Sox-Yankee Series In London

2018 World Series Champion center-fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. will join Yankee pitcher CC Sabahtia for a promotional tour in London in advance of the Red Sox-Yankees series there next June. The two rivals will pair-up this week to tour the UK capital, visit the many iconic sites there and attend English Premier League soccer games. Said Bradley, "As an athlete who has been fortunate to play for the Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball, the ability to promote our sport on a world stage is an exciting opportunity. I'm looking forward to our series in London in June 2019, and to bringing our storied rivalry against the New York Yankees to a new audience." Sabathia had some comments, too—but do you really care what he had to say? We didn't think so. The two-game series will take place June 29 and 30, 2019 at London Stadium. The Red Sox will serve as the "home team"—reducing the number of games at Fenway Park next year from 81 to 79.
