Yankees, Red Sox to clash in London in 2019

The NFL has played 18 games at Wembley and three at Twickenham. But two of the best hitting teams in baseball may find at least one thing to their liking: the dimensions of London Stadium.

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that Oakland and Seattle will open next season at the Tokyo Dome on March 20-21.

"They are excited about the chance to meet new fans, and showcase the game they love". Both will be home games for the Sox. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.
