The final week of the regular season brings the final edition of “’Weekly’ hit ground ball” for 2007. The story of the week has been the daily shifting fortunes of teams embroiled in the hunt for October, so it seems fitting to chart “the week that was” in chronological fashion.
Excited? I guess it depends whether you are a fan of the Mets, Padres, Phillies or Rockies. While us neutrals can sit back and enjoy watching the twists and turns, it’s going to be a tense, nerve-jangling day for the four teams involved. It’s one of the strange parts of being a fan of a [...]
Yesterday all four NL play-off spots were up for grabs. Now it’s down to two and the results from the early games today could go a long way to deciding who takes them. Bearing in mind the time difference, that’s perfect for us British fans.
Just a reminder for any Sky subscribers in the U.K. that NASN (the North American Sports Network) will be free to view all weekend from 17.00 tonight. The offer is part of the promotion for the two NHL games that are taking place at the O2 Arena in London this weekend and which will be [...]

Only two weeks to go. Where has the season gone?! Better make the most of the live action while we can. Here’s my guide to the games you can follow live during the British evening this week. All times are listed in BST.
The Netherlands proved to be too strong for Great Britain on the final day of the 2007 European Baseball Championship, as the Dutch team booked its place at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with a 6-1 victory. The tournament schedule could not have worked any better as the two teams took to the field in Barcelona [...]
It’s been yet another intriguing week in MLB. In the American League, we can probably say that there are now five teams battling for four spots. In the National League, all three divisions are far from settled with the possibility that even the Mets could miss out altogether on October baseball. If the past week [...]
