The Boston Red Sox are going international this year.

Major League Baseball has a two-game series scheduled to be played in London between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees. The series will mark the first time an MLB game will be played in Europe.

“It is amazing to be able to expand the game abroad and internationally,” said Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. “I think it will be great for the game of baseball.”

Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart said, “It is going to be fun. It is going to be a good time, and it is going to be a good series out there.”

Swihart said playing against the Yankees makes the matchup even more anticipated for fans. “I think the fans play a big part into it. We get into it more when the fans are into it. We are just going to go out there, experience something new in London and have some fun.”

Both games will be played at London Stadium on June 29 and June 30.
