MLB games in London for 2019 & 2020 - the first city to host a Major League Baseball game in Europe", London's mayor Sadiq Khan said in a tweet. "All the hard work has paid off". But two of the best hitting teams in baseball may find at least one thing to their liking: the dimensions of London Stadium.


Regardless of the success of the MLB's foray to London, two more matches have already been slated for 2020 - potentially involving different teams - as Manfred continues his push to expand baseball's footprint beyond the confines of the US.

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world. "It's also the first time the Red Sox and Yankees have played one another outside of NY or Boston".


"I've never been to London, so I'm looking forward to that", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium". "We look forward to welcoming Major League Baseball, teams and fans to London Stadium for the first year of what we hope to be a fruitful, long term partnership".
