Yankees vs. Red Sox…. In London? Maybe!

Rivalry renewed! Rivalry not only renewed but taken overseas and battled out over foreign lands. Maybe. The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are at least discussing the possibility of having a game between the two clubs in London, England as soon as the 2018 season. I love it when Major League Baseball, an international game, goes international so this news obviously excites me just a little bit.

Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner and Red Sox owner John henry have been discussing the possibility according to the Boston Herald. Randy Levine has stated that the Yankees have been at the “forefront” of bringing the game to London so the possibility of this finally coming to fruition may finally be a real thing here in a couple of seasons.

Olympic Stadium, which was built for the 2012 Summer Olympics, is reportedly the leading candidate to host the games if the series were to come to London. MLB has not announced the deal and it’s merely just speculation and discussions at this point but you have to start somewhere and the movement towards games in London has at least begun.

This is exciting news. Stay tuned.
