The Red Sox and Yankees will be playing a set of two games in London in June, bringing their famous rivalry to England for the first time. Tickets are already on sale for the two games at Lords Cricket Ground in London in what should be an exciting exhibition series.

Ahead of the series, Jackie Bradley Jr. and C.C Sabathia have been in England this week in order to promote the 2019 series. Both players have been touring London, as well as taking in soccer (or rather football) games.
JBJ has been enjoying his time in England, having visited various historical sites in London as well as taking in the local culture. Today Jackie took in the Manchester United vs Liverpool game in London. The Liverpool club is also owned by Sox owner John Henry, and Jackie got to share in the excitement of a 3-1 Liverpool win. Jackie seems to have had a good time in the UK and has helped to drum up some excitement 6 months ahead of this historic meeting in London. Jackie also spent some time with the Great Britain baseball team as well as learned about the rules of cricket at Lords Cricket Ground.
Hopefully JBJ doesn’t make a transfer to Liverpool FC and is able to provide some more excitement in England upon his return back to London in June.
