Yankees vs. Red Sox: Does England have an appetite for baseball? | MLB

With the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox playing an historic two-game series at the London Stadium, ESPN decided to delve a little deeper into America’s national pastime and its origins in England. We caught up with a British professor and American baseball historian John Thorn, who claims the sport was first played in England in the 1690’s and a different version adopted in America in the 1730’s wasn’t the invention of Abner Doubleday. Plus, we met some of the locals that have taken to the sport and the London ‘Mets’ who remain undefeated to their rivals, the London ‘Capitals.’
