Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, who left Sunday's game after getting hit in the back by a throw, will be in the starting lineup against the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

The games will be the first Major League Baseball regular season contests played in Europe.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred was in London to make the announcement and said there was a commitment to play in London in 2020 as well, with the "intention to establish a long-term footprint in the city".

But it will not be the first time regular-season Major League Baseball matches will have been played outside the United States, with ties already having been staged in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia.

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. The Oakland A's and Seattle Mariners will also open the 2019 season at the Tokyo Dome in March.

Red Sox owner John W. Henry said his team and the Yankees had been discussing the possibility of playing in London for several years.

Red Sox principal owner John Henry, who also owns Liverpool FC of the Premier League, said that Boston and NY have been talking about playing overseas for some time.

"It will be a fantastic two days next year".

But while everyone loves some old-fashioned Red Sox-Yankees animosity, there's a better reason why this historic rivalry is generating buzz: Both teams are really, really good.

"This series will surely be the most significant global event to date for Major League ball".

The news represents a coup for the mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who has been pushing to make his city the "capital of world sport".

It's the first time since 2002 Boston and NY have met with the two best records in all of baseball.
