Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has today unveiled plans for the historic London Series 2019, which will take place at the London Stadium next June.

Major League Baseball is heading to London. Two of the most recognizable teams are once again two of the best.

The two rivals will square off in Major League Baseball's first games in Europe on June 29 and 20, 2019, with Boston the home team for both tilts.

Major League Baseball says it intends to play again in 2020 and establish "a long-term footprint in the city".

Robeco Institutional Asset Management Bv holds 0.03% of its portfolio in Bunge Limited (NYSE:BG) for 97,761 shares. Barclays Capital maintained it with "Overweight" rating and $190 target in Wednesday, September 21 report.

But it will not be the first time regular-season Major League Baseball matches will have been played outside the USA, with ties already having been staged in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia.

"Major League Baseball is excited to be bringing one of the most storied rivalries in sports to the passionate fans of London", said Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. "So fans can expect intense competition during what will surely be a great few days in London". "They are aware they'll be a part of history, but they also know these games count".

He told the London Evening Standard: "Since I became mayor, I have been determined to bring baseball to our city and I am really pleased we have been able to reach what is an historic agreement".

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY. This series will surely be the most significant global event to date for Major League ball.

The series next year will not be a one-and-done, either.

"London Stadium has a track record of successfully delivering major global events, moving from Premier League Football and both worldwide and domestic showpiece rugby fixtures to hosting some of the biggest names in music".
