As we head into July we’re spoilt for choice with sporting action from the second week of Wimbledon, the knock-out stages of the World Cup and plenty of live baseball to watch at a convenient time too.
In fact, we have a very rare treat on Wednesday of being able to watch live MLB games on two British TV channels at the same time. And three of the early games are also available to watch online for free on MLB.com, so non-BT Sport or MLB.TV subscribers can join in the fun too.
There are 17 MLB games scheduled to begin before midnight U.K. time this working week.
Wednesday and Thursday are fallow days in the World Cup as teams get ready for the quarter-finals, so the batch of baseball games to enjoy will be very welcome indeed.
Friday is a U.S. Public Holiday so a number of teams are playing day-games to start their long weekend.
All times are listed in BST.
