For the first time since 2019, Major League Baseball will have the London Series.
The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox squared off in a brief two-game series in London to mark the inaugural London Series.
The St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs were set to square off in 2020 before COVID-19 wiped it off the schedule.
But this year, the London Series will be making its return, with the Cardinals and Cubs playing a two-game weekend series on June 24 and 25.
On Tuesday, the start times of several MLB games were revealed, including those for the London Series.
Cardinals writer Derrick Goold provided the news on the start times of the series.
Breakfast and baseball! #stlcards second game against #Cubs in London will start at 9,10 a.m. St. Louis time.
First London game at 12,10 p.m. STL on June 24.
First three home games will day games — 3/30 opening day at 3,10 p.m. local, then 1,15 p.m. & 1,15 p.m. vs. #BlueJays.

The first game will take place on the final Saturday of June and will start at 1:10 p.m. Eastern Time and 12:10 Central.
The second game is an interesting one.
That game starts at 10:10 a.m. Eastern, 9:10 Central.
Fans in St. Louis and Chicago, both of which are cities in the Central time zone, may just be crawling out of bed to see their teams square off in the series finale.
As Goold put it, it’s a mix of baseball and breakfast, which is quite rare.
The game will start at a normal time in London, of course, as London is six hours ahead of St. Louis and Chicago.
But for fans of the Cardinals and Cubs who are not in attendance, the day will begin with baseball right off the bat.
It’s been four years since MLB has had the chance to do this, but finally, the London Series is making its return.NEXT: Mets GM Offered Several Starling Marte Updates
