"There really is nothing more American than Baseball; it's hot dogs and peanuts and long afternoons of drinking. Baseball is cricket minus the maths and the boredom. "It will be a great occasion as a little bit of America comes to London's East End."

The Boston Red Sox will play the New York Yankees in the first ever Mitel & MLB Present London Series 2019 on June 29-30 at London Stadium.
