Via The Guardian.com. Plan your European Vacation for 2019 because the Red Sox will be playing the Yankees in London next Summer.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has scheduled a press conference next Tuesday to make the official announcement with MLB commisioner Rob Manfred. A source told the Associated Press that the Sox and Yankees will play two games at the London Stadium on June 29th and 30th 2019.
And the players make a little extra cake, each player on the trip will get an extra $60,000 for participating in the games, according to baseball’s collective bargaining agreement.
How many Londoners know the game? This is a cricket country. And what about food? Will they serve Blood Pudding in a mini batting helmet instead of ice cream?
