As you can imagine, Major League Baseball and ESPN are pulling out all the stops for this weekend’s two game set between the Yankees and Red Sox in London. Starting at 9 am ET on Sunday, Baseball Tonight fans can catch Karl Ravech and Mark Teixeira broadcasting from across the pond leading up to the 10 am first pitch inside London’s Olympic Stadium. It’s during that hour you’ll catch Chris Connelly features highlighting the significance of MLB’s first regular season game in Europe – and a comparison with how the Sox-Yankees rivalry stacks up against those of the EPL.
Sam Borden will also take a look at the international impact of the Yankees logo and how recognizable it is in the United Kingdom.
Matt Vasgersian, Alex Rodriguez and Jessica Mendoza will drive the morning edition of Sunday Night Baseball once the game is underway, with Buster Olney on the ground. Fans who tune in early will see a special ceremony involving both the “Star Spangled Banner” and the “God Save The Queen.”
