Hey guys, I'm really pleased to have found this thread.
I'm in the UK and was a fan of baseball in my teenage years; though the coverage over here was pretty sparse 25 years or so ago. I used to watch the coverage at the time and enjoyed it without really developing an understanding of the fine detail of the game.
My interest has been re-ignited over the past two seasons or so.....I get access to probably 5 or 6 live matches per week these days from my TV provider, and I've developed much more understanding of the rules and tactics etc.
A lot of the games start around Midnight/1 am here, so I rarely see those.....but there are also plenty that get going around 8 pm, which is great
I noticed Derek Jeters name popped up earlier in thread.....he is one of the few player I remember from watching first time around and I nearly fell of my chair last season when I caught a Yankees game, and there he was still playing at top level and playing well by all accounts too!!
I have plans to come over to the US someday to do a bit of a beer/food trip.....and when I make it happen I will definitely include taking in a game....it looks like everyone has such a great time.
Those seats (or are they armchairs/lazyboys) behind home plate look like the place to be.......but boy are those an expensive treat!!!
