Red Sox And Yankees Will Play Two Games In London Next Season

The Guardian, May 3, 2018:
Major League Baseball will announce next week that the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will play two games at the London Stadium on 29 and 30 June next year ...

The London mayor, Sadiq Khan, has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred but has not announced the subject matter. ...

Baseball officials have long hoped to host games in the British capital and settled last year on the London Stadium, which hosted the 2012 Olympics ... Because it was originally built to house a 400m track, the stadium is wider than other major sports venues in London and can best accommodate the dimensions of a baseball field.
Here is an overhead picture of the bucolic garden in which the games will be played
