Red Sox, Yankees to play two games in London in 2019

Baseball officials have long hoped for games on London and settled a year ago on Olympic Stadium, which is in its second season as home of West Ham of the Premier League.

The London Stadium, occupied by West Ham during the football season, is the proposed host venue for a two regular season games between the two storied baseball franchises in June 2019.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are nearing an agreement to play a two-game, regular season series in London in June 2019, according to people familiar with the matter. However, the agreement is said to be close to done. The Cleveland Indians and the Minnesota Twins will play a two-game series in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on April 17-18, and the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers will play a three-game series in Monterrey, Mexico, on May 4-6.

MLB reportedly made a decision to hold the series in June because it is in the window following the Premier League season and before Olympic Stadium needs to be ready for track and field events, per the AP. Major League Baseball hopes to make an announcement within the next two months. They may also count as Boston Red Sox home games, according to the speculation.

Officials for Major League Baseball and the teams didn't immediately respond to emails seeking comment. The league is set to have more games for the coming season including two games at Wembley Stadium, one of which will feature the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars this October.
