AP sources: Mets-Nats or Cubs-Cards for London in 2020

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Major League Baseball is considering one of two matchups for its 2020 series in London: New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals or Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals.

Two people familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press of the potential matchups. They spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because no announcements had been authorized. An announcement is expected after opening day this year.

I thought the point of these games was to encourage baseball in the United Kingdom, not to discourage it….

Tickets for Yanks-Red Sox in London in June cost $38-$493

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball is charging princely prices for its first games in Britain.

Premium seats at London’s Olympic Stadium will cost 385 pounds ($493) for the games between the New York Yankees and World Series champion Boston Red Sox on June 29 and 30. The top non-premium seats near the infield cost 320 pounds ($410).

Seats in the outfield corners go for 270 ($346) and 220 pounds ($282), according to a chart on Ticketmaster’s website. The ones behind the outfield fences go for 120 pounds ($154).

Ever get a feeling that MLB would mug us on the street if they thought we had a few bucks in our wallets?

Alex Rodriguez talks MLB coming to London - ‘You’ll see baseballs hit over 550ft that fans will think are golf balls’

People might not know baseball, but they sure know “A-Rod”. Three-time Major League Baseball MVP Alex Rodriguez is in London this week to help promote next year’s London Series, a blockbuster match-up on June 29 and 30 between Rodriguez’s former side, the New York Yankees, and reigning world champions the Boston Red Sox.

While the NFL and, to a lesser extent, the NBA are now regulars on these shores, this is the first time MLB has dipped its toe into the Europe.

Bringing the Red Sox and Yankees, the sport’s two iconic franchises, across the pond should be taken as a statement of intent, with tickets going on sale at the start of December.

In case you’ve ever wanted to read how the Daily Telegraph would try to describe baseball to its audience….
