Report: MLB, MLBPA discussing games in Europe

Monday June 30th, 2014

Major League Baseball and the MLBPA are in talks to play regular season games in Europe as soon as next season, Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reports.

The games likely would take place in the middle of the season because of weather concerns in London, reportedly MLB's top choice as location. Previous intercontinental games in Japan and Australia have taken place prior to the start of the season. However, travel to London is less of a concern for teams on the east coast.

MLB would be following in the footsteps of the NFL, which has played a game in London every season since 2007. The Jaguars in 2013 agreed to play one home game per season in London through 2016.
