History will be made at London Stadium on the weekend of 29-30 June as the Boston Red Sox face off against their arch-rivals the New York Yankees in the first-ever regular-season Major League Baseball match to be held in Europe, and ProgrammeMaster have hit a home run when it comes to the official gameday programme.
The 116-page publication is available to pre-order now via our online shop, or can be bought from a number of vendors at London Stadium at both the Saturday and Sunday matches between the biggest names in baseball.
It is packed with plenty of articles, features and interviews to please hardcore fans or those new to the game, with exclusive interviews with the Red Sox’s Jackie Bradley Jr. and Yankees legend CC Sabathia, as well as a look at the history of both ballclubs including the story of the famous ‘Curse of the Bambino’.
Some of the greatest players to don the pinstripes and red socks are profiled as we count down the greatest 15 to represent either club, and we also take a look Sabathia’s fellow members in the illustrious 3,000 strike-out club.
While it might be the first MLB regular-season game on these shores, Britain has a strong link to the sport’s history which is looked back on, as well as some of the Europeans who have made their names in the Major Leagues over the last three centuries.
As well as this, there is also a guide to the rules of the game and some of the baffling terminology used for those fans perhaps watching a baseball match for the first time.
All this plus much, much more, can be yours for just £10 – the perfect memento for this historic occasion.
