Extra tickets for the London games will be released today via Ticketmaster.

I assume that these are team returns, so they could be good seats

I once caught a scorching foul ball in Cleveland off the bat of Big Papi*

(* any video of me picking the ball up as it rolled along the ground is clearly a deep-fake)

My tickets came yesterday.

My Sunday ticket finally arrived by email on Tuesday. The Saturday one was here a week earlier. A bit strange

I flew into LHR this morning and am now in a pub by the London Stadium.

If anyone wants to meet up in/around the stadium over the weekend let me know

Boston pitcher just had a nightmare. One out left, deep into the count and ended up giving up 6 runs.

Something tells me that the current score (17-13) is not your average baseball score.
