It'd be the first time the Cubs have played in London, a new milestone for an organization full of them. MLB has ramped up it's international reach of late, scheduling series in Mexico, Japan, and Austrailia.
This year, the Atheltics and the Mariners are opening the season in Tokyo, while the Red Sox and Yankees will face off in London later in July.
