Game times set for Yankees-Red Sox games in London
Game times are set for the two-game series in London between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees this summer.
Major League Baseball announced Friday that the opener at London's Olympic Stadium on Saturday, June 29 will start at 6:10 p.m. London time (1:10 p.m. ET) and will be televised by FOX.
First pitch for Sunday's finale is set for 3:10 p.m. (10:10 a.m. ET). ESPN will broadcast that contest.
The Red Sox are the designated home team for both contests, which will be the first two major league games to be played in Europe.
London Stadium was constructed for the 2012 Olympics and has an estimated capacity of 57,000 with a baseball configuration.
Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia and Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. are in London to help promote the event. Sabathia will attend a soccer match between Manchester City FC and Everton on Saturday while Bradley will travel to Liverpool for Sunday's match between Liverpool and Manchester United.
The Yankees and Red Sox have played international series games before. New York opened the 2004 season in Japan against the Tampa Bay Rays. Boston played two games against the Oakland A's in Japan to start the 2008 regular season.
