The Kings don't win the World Series until about 15 years after Bokai joins the team. In 2015, he's just a rookie.
They didn't explicitly say the 2015 Kings won the world series but they included them in a debate about 'Greatest team of all time'. I think it's fair to say they won the WS.

Let's put it this way. Would you include the 2007 Patriots in a debate about the greatest American football team of all time?

Maybe it's actually London, Ontario?
Bokai's uniform seemed to have a bit of Britishness to it (there was a crown as part of the logo). And coupled with the fact that the team is called "Kings", it would seem to suggest the UK.

Or they called them the Kings as a nod to London, England.

Except London, Ontario isn't big enough to support a professional sports franchise.

^ And the only other Canadian city that has a chance would be Montreal, where some are attempting just that (i.e. a revived Expos).

Re: Which baseball team is going to move to London?

With all respect to baseball and the US, I think I can quite confidently predict that the game will never be popular enough in the UK for us to have a Major League team. Our sport market is too crowded for that to happen.

We never hear about the World Cricket Championships. I assume there is one.

Out of curiosity, would there be an issue calling something "Kings" when there is a sitting queen?

I think the NFL will be in London before MLB given the NFLs investment in the Olympic stadium and the VERY popular exhibition games

All we have to do is convince the British to stop calling soccer football.

I doubt it. Just a reference to the monarchy in Britain, and calling an all male team the Queens would be awkward.

Though Britain's national anthem is God Save the Queen. When a king assumes the throne, it'll change appropriately.

I see MLB expanding into Japan or Latin America before Europe. There's more of a fan base to be had there despite all the other problems of such an expansion.
They really should expand into Canada again by going back to Montreal, or maybe to Vancouver.

Mexico already has a Triple-A minor league, so it's a possibility too.
