Always seems to happen. You’re walking around Covent Garden, getting ready to take in a performance of Mozart’s Così fan tutte at the Royal Opera House and, wouldn’t you know it, you don’t have your Mets cap or a big foam finger with Chief Wahoo on it or what have you.

Now your problems are solved!

Major League Baseball is testing the waters across the pond with a pop-up store in downtown London, baseball’s first standalone retail space in Europe.

The MLB Official Pop-Up Store, located in London’s Covent Garden district, officially opened to the public on Monday, Sept. 12. The shop sells clothing and memorabilia from all 30 teams. It will keep its doors open until the end of 2016.

All 30 teams, eh? Would KILL to see how many Diamondbacks or Rays shirts they sell in London. I assume they sell Kansas City merch like crazy, though.
