Chicago Cubs: Cheerio, mate!

Baseball is a global game. Ever since the inception of the first World Baseball Classic in 2006, as well as the many professional leagues around the world it was only a matter of time until London became a hub for continuing to grow the game.

As the National Football League has been doing consistently since 2007, the appeal to transition action across the pond for Major League Baseball is something well worth exploring. For the upcoming London series this season, MLB has already negotiated a TV deal with the BBC to make the games available for fans in the United Kingdom.

As the Cubs-Cardinals are one proposed series, the Mets-Nationals are being considered as the other match-up. For fans and the league, division match-ups should bring the most interest.
