The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are nearing an agreement to play a two-game regular season series in London, England according to reports. If an agreement can be reached the series will take place at London’s Olympic Stadium on June 29 and 30 in 2019.

As part of the new collective bargaining agreement, which runs through 2021, the league will play more international regular-season games. For doing so, each player would receive $60,000 for their participation.

Back in July 2018 MLB chief legal officer Dan Halem said, “Playing major-league games abroad is critically important to growing the game internationally, and we are very pleased that the parties were able to agree on a very comprehensive international play plan in bargaining.''

This season the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins will play in Puerto Rico in April while the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres will play a series in Mexico in May.

The Brits should not be worried though that the retooled and now more powerful bats of the Yankees, which includes Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, will be bombarding London Bridge with home run balls. The bridge sits about five miles away from the stadium, so it should not see any balls landing near it.
