Any Brit who thinks baseball is any easy, non-contact sport should try catching a Zack Greinke fastball in their mouth. Torii Hunter gave it a go today and ended up with a bloody lip and a trip to hospital. According to reports, Hunter initially started to confront Greinke about his lack of control before collapsing [...]
Apart from the normal clutch of Thursday day games, it’s fairly slim pickings this week when it comes to live games being played during the evening British time. Here is my pick of the best games available on MLB.TV, times being listed in BST.
