The first ever MLB London Series takes place this weekend as the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox meet in a two-game series at the London Stadium.
Major League Baseball comes to London for its first ever regular season games in the UK this month. The Boston Red Sox will face the New York Yankees in England’s capital, bringing one of sport’s greatest rivalries across the Atlantic for two games.
The New York Yankees traded for Edwin Encarnacion on Saturday, creating somewhat of a logjam offensively. Clint Frazier, a young outfielder, who has often been mentioned in trade rumours, is likely to be the odd one out with Luke Voit and Encarnacion sharing first base and DH while Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge occupy the corner outfield slots.
