Heading across the pond next year to watch the Boston Red Sox play in London? You might want to pack a few extra pounds.


The Associated Press revealed ticket prices for Major League Baseball's 2019 London series, a two-game set between the Red Sox and rival New York Yankees at London's Olympic Stadium. And this shouldn't surprise you, but they're not exactly a bargain.

Here's a breakdown of prices for each section, which the AP obtained from a Ticketmaster seating chart:

- Premium seats: 385 pounds ($493)

- Top non-premium seats near the infield: 320 pounds ($410)

- Outfield corner seats: 270 pounds ($346) and 220 pounds ($282)

- Seats behind the outfield fences: 120 pounds ($154)

- Second deck seats: 270 pounds ($345), 170 pounds ($218), 145 pounds ($186), 120 pounds ($153), 80 pounds ($102), 45 pounds ($58) and 30 pounds ($38)

Hey, that $38 price tag isn't terrible ... right?

Some of those second-deck seats may not present the best view, as Olympic Stadium typically hosts soccer matches and track and field events. Still, the London series -- set for June 29 and 30 -- should be an exciting event in what is MLB's first foray into Europe.

If you don't mind dropping the dough, a presale for Red Sox and Yankees season ticket holders begins Friday, while tickets will be available to the general public starting Dec. 6.

The hype over the Red Sox and Yankees rivalry is the main reason I barely watch non-Padres baseball anymore. Is the League trying to prove to the English they were right to like cricket?
