Baseball comes to London

Posted: July 26, 2019 in Sport

A couple of weekends ago Sue and I went to see the New York Yankees play the Boston Red Sox at the London Stadium.

We arrived in time to see the Yankees at batting practice and the pre-game show.

Then it was time for the game. The Yankees scored 6 in the first innings and we thought it was all over but then the Red Sox scored 6 in their first innings. The Yankees pulled ahead again but the Red Sox came back again but they couldn’t quite make it and the final score was 17-13 to the Yankees.

There was a mascot race with a British theme – Winston Churchill; Henry VII; Freddy Mercury and the Loch Ness Monster. The winner was Freddy Mercury who just beat Henry VIII
