For Londoners, an introduction into the world of baseball might need to be in play here. As common as Americans staring blankley at a cricket game in a British Pub, many Londoners may not quite understand the rules of baseball. The MLB sees a future for the game of baseball that expands over sees and in an attempt to expand the popularity of American baseball in the United Kingdom, to Europe and further abroad, the MLB London Series returns to The Big Smoke as the great city was once was popularly known.
This year the Chicago Cubs will take on the St. Louis Cardinals in a two game matchup taking place Saturday and Sunday. The Cardinals Cubs rivalry is real and will be out in full force in London with the MLB London Series.
