The Boston Herald reports
the Boston Red Sox
and the New York Yankees
plan to resume their classic rivalry via a series in London—in 2018.* This follows the recent agreement reached by MLB
, and is a further example of professional baseball “internationalizing” at the highest level. Hal Steinbrenner
, principal owner of the Yankees, is central to the story.
*This was moved back, to June 2019; and here is the latest, as of May 8, 2018. In December 2018, Jackie Bradley Jr. and veteran CC Sabathia are off to London as a promo.
