Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Watch London's First Major League Baseball Match

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Watch London's First Major League Baseball Match

It took 1:51 to play the first three innings and 2:58 for 4 1/2, but unlike in cricket, the teams did not break for tea. Harry, meanwhile, proudly wore his Invictus Games polo shirt. The second match will take place on Sunday. "To all those serving in the Armed Forces, both in the United Kingdom and overseas, be it in uniform or family - we want to thank you for the work you do every day in representing and protecting your country".

Harry and Meghan strolled out to the mound as they were seen speaking to representatives of the Invictus Games and pitchers CC Sabathia of the Yankees and Chris Sale of the Red Sox.

Some 30 runs were scored, to make it the game with the most runs since Boston beat the Baltimore Orioles 19-12 previous year. Boston's next batter, Michael Chavis, followed up with a 3-run homer to tie the game and end Tanaka's day.

"The stadium, the atmosphere, just looking up into the outfield and seeing all those people there, it is pretty special to play out there", LeMahieu said.

"I think we're getting as good a reception as football has for the last couple years", Yankees first baseman Luke Voit said.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May. In the Red Sox clubhouse, Markle hugged outfielder Mookie Betts, who is her distant relative, The Boston Globe reported.

But while reality may have beckoned back at Frogmore Cottage, the Sussexes showed no signs of exhaustion and mingled with both the baseball players and injured veterans who attended on behalf of the Invictus Games. "I haven't felt this nervous in a while but it was a great moment for the team", Red Sox manager Alex Cora told ESPN. As expected, the earlier news of them leaving the Kensington Palace grounds just fueled the speculations even more.
