Yankees and Red Sox to play in London next year

New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres

West Ham are involved in a £100 million ($141 million/€114 million) High Court legal row with the London Legacy Development Corporation over capacity at the stadium, where the club are tenants, and over other aspects such as who pays match-day costs for food, drink, television and hospitality.

The teams were selected as the two participants in the first ever London Series, which will take place on June 29 and 30 of next year.

It has also been confirmed there will be another two-game Major League Baseball series at the east London venue in the summer of 2020.

The NFL have been playing regular-season games in London since 2007, and could eventually host a franchise if the proposed purchase of Wembley Stadium by Shahid Khan, the owner of Jacksonville Jaguars, goes ahead.

The 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 stadium infrastructure in this city gives Major League Baseball every opportunity to put on a first-class event", Manfred added. "We think that London is the flawless place and we're excited about bringing over one of the great rivalries".

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that Oakland and Seattle will open next season at the Tokyo Dome on March 20-21. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome. "So we understand there will be a lot of excitement around it", said Yankees manager Aaron Boone on Sunday. This series will surely be the most significant global event to date for Major League ball. "We expect an exciting and intense pair of games and appreciate the significance of representing our sport in such a meaningful way".

"One of the important factors was that John and Hal had been talking about this possibility for a very long time". These are the two best baseball teams in the world and arguably the two best sporting teams in the world.

Which Red Sox player (past or present) holds the Major League Baseball record for most home runs against the Yankees on the road during his rookie season?

Boston Red Sox joint owner John W Henry.
