The Major League Baseball boss talks to Sadiq Khan

The Major League Baseball boss talks to Sadiq Khan about bringing the sport to London – and Sadiq even tried a pitch.

The MLB has never played a game in Europe, but London has hosted American football and basketball games.

However, an MLB spokesman said: “Commissioner Manfred and the Mayor of London had a very good meeting on a variety of topics. Nothing specific has been determined regarding when a game might occur in London and what teams would participate.”

Plans for anything next summer were abandoned as “time ran out” for negotiations for this season.
