With MLB playing so many games internationally and gimmick games like Field of Dreams, Little League, CWS yada yada. An interesting stat would be how many different stadiums a player hit a home run in. I mean it would just be a stat for fun and not mean that much. You could retroactively go back and see how many stadiums players hit homers in during say the mid 2000s when players were playing in an era when a lot of the teams were replacing their stadiums. Of course players in Interleauge era would have an advantage in this category. And postseason homers would count for this stat.

I’m giving some serious thought to going.


That would be really cool. A month later and the BPL would be going though. In July maybe one of their 600 tournaments will be going, like the Zooropa, or the English Catillion Bi-Ennial Sub-Decade Open.


Apparently the final of Euro 2020 is at Wembley that weekend.

I live 200 miles from London and have ‘registered interest’ in tickets. I booked my hotel (non refundable) near enough in the shadow of the horrific Olympic stadium.

I will be annoyed if I don’t get tickets having flown around 50,000 miles over to St. Louis and other US cities over the years.

The pre-sale is 21 November. Follow MLB London on Facebook for updates.

We will see I suppose.

They have just released the ticket prices.

I can’t believe there are enough people that are willing to spend over £100 on two teams they care little about (which is what happens when the NFL are here).

Well it looks like I will be looking for upper bleachers and move around once the novelty has worn off for the one-timers.

Looks like the seats down the lines (behind the premium ones) are really far away from the field. Bring binoculars.

That stadium is an absolute mess. It was fine for the Olympics and probably the concerts they have there in the summer.

The fans of the football team that play there hate it. And it is in a.......’stabby’ part of London.

One way or another I have to get tickets because I have already booked my hotel. I know someone who went to the Yankees/Red Sox game last year. 12 runs in the first inning and both starting pitchers taken out, plenty of home runs and he said he was bored!

Me too.

At least when EPL teams play here they have the decency to do it in the preseason and acknowledge it's an exhibition game.

Not sure if the Daughters of the American Revolution would support this venue.
