This is the Yankees’ chance to blow past the Red Sox

The Yankees opened the 2004 season with a two-game series against the Rays and the Red Sox opened the 2008 season with two games against the Oakland Athletics.

The two-game set is part of a two-year agreement that MLB has to play games in London, with the league saying their "intention is to establish a long-term footprint in the city". "This is a major coup demonstrating, once again, that London is the sporting capital of the world and I am excited about a new partnership with MLB and the long term future of this sport in our great city".

Baseball commissioner Robert Manfred described the plan as "our most significant endeavor in Europe", while Tony Clark, executive director of the players' association, MLBPA, said fans should expect intense competition. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

London has oftentimes played host to middling or low-level teams for its NFL and NBA games, but MLB appears to be going all in by showcasing its premier rivalry in the form of the Yankees against the Red Sox.

"We could not be happier that Commissioner Manfred has been able to make this a reality", Red Sox owner John Henry said.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly connects with a punch on the head of Yankees' Tyler Austin. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium".

The stadium, which hosted the 2012 Olympics and is now home to West Ham, will be reconfigured for baseball, with 55,000 seats in place for the series. "We think that London is the ideal place and we're excited about bringing over one of the great rivalries".

"Major League Baseball is excited to be bringing one of the most storied rivalries in sports to the passionate fans of London", said Manfred.

This season the Yankees have a better record than every other MLB teams except the Red Sox, which is 25-9 and top American League East. Both will be home games for the Sox.
