ROME (AP) — London’s Olympic Stadium is in the running to host a regular-season Major League Baseball game.

American officials have been looking in Europe for years to find a facility with the right dimensions and seating capacity for regular-season games.

Clive Russell of MLB International tells The Associated Press that the London stadium, “the way it’s built, actually is big enough for a baseball game.”

Russell adds that MLB is already talking to the London Games’ legacy committee.

Another option is a new $20 million stadium being built near Schipol airport in the Netherlands.
