I’ll probably still look to go but I’d say tickets will be very hard to get. Hopefully they’d do a presale for MLB.tv subscribers or something.
I'm the same

I've only ever been to baseball in baseball parks in the US surrounded by people for whom baseball is second nature.

The idea of a game in a soccer stadium surrounded by people who are there for the "event" is not that appealing.

I'll wait till it's official and the pricing comes out to make a decision.

No doubt most people there will be calling it a "match" and it will be played on a "pitch"

It's not a "match" it's a "game" and it's played on a "field" not a "pitch"

Off topic rant over.

Is there any info out there on how the field will be configured? I've in the London Stadium for Athletics but I could imagine you could be miles away from the action depending on where home plate will be.

Most likely I will pass as like others I just don't think it would be the same as attending a game in the US. They are always a great experience and something I always look forward to when work or holidays take me across the big pond

Still very much in two minds about this. The ticket price will have big bearing on my decision

Seems to be on a par and around the usual range for MLB games. Actually £320 is probably quite reasonable for a Yankees top price ticket, as ridiculous as that might sound.

Still in two minds about this. But leaning toward going.

Won't be forking out 320 for a ticket though

I tried looking for an interactive seating map of the London Stadium but can't find one.

I'd would not be able to afford expensive seats so I'd like to try and sus out what each category view was before deciding.

Anyone know of a good map.

I couldn't find a map but looking at photos and current layout, it looks like 130-142 would be the best bang for buck tickets. The problem with London Stadium is that the seating is relatively flat so you could be very far from the action, particularly in the 2xx seats.

Found this
This is section 222 which along with 250 is the cheapest set of seats in the house at £30
222 is just at the end of the 1st base line, 250 the 3rd base line

The plate will be somewhere around the soccer "technical area" which you can see outlined



This is 130, over near the bullpen on the 1st base side at £120
