215. Posted by Roger68 Youre right in a sense. take a simple game (Rugby League) and try to make it complicated and interesting, but fail. (Rugby Union). So its not just an American thing is it?-------Wrong way round. Take a simple game like Rugby Union and make it even simpler. League started about 50 years after Union.
No idea what this comment is trying to achieve. I'd hazard a guess this was written by a brexit voter. How dare people enjoy something from a country other than England.185. The Black PeleA bunch of cockneys pretending they're yanks going to Wembley to watch American fancy dress Football is frankly an embarrassment to our great country.
I like baseball as different teams win the world series each year, and its not dominated by just a few teams.
As a Dodgers fan a disappointing end to what has been a great World Series, unfortunately we never recovered from an awful start from Darvish. But congrats to Houston, worthy winners in the end and also fitting after what that city has been through. Looking forward to next season.
A great Series played out by two talented teams. Well done to both. Dodgers v NYY in the 2018 Series?
The BBC had 4 hours of NFL on a couple of weeks ago - a game only lasts 1 hour !! stop paying the licence fee
Buggleskelly WednesdayI do enjoy a nice game of rounders!That reminds about a quote from Only Fools and Horses when Rodney was talking about Baseball and Del Boy said it was justSilly boys rounders
Congratulations Houston Astros but watch out for the Phillies next year.
I do enjoy a nice game of rounders!
59 Trytastic... Youre right in a sense. take a simple game (Rugby League) and try to make it complicated and interesting, but fail. (Rugby Union). So its not just an American thing is it?
for those of you complaining its not the "World", of course the Yanks know that. But there is something called the World Baseball Classic where countries compete against each other, and its been going for a few years... which gives the many Latinos playing in the big leagues to play for Venezuela etc where baseball is almost as huge as football is. and as an long time Astros fan, I'm happy
Why are the BBC sport pages littered with American sports all of a sudden. American football, basketball and now baseball. Do they not realise that the vast majority of the country couldn't give a rats posterior about these dreadful 'sports'.
Hugely exciting Series, with some real skill on show. Apologies to anyone offended by way too many of my British brethren making the same old rounders / World digs. Read Hardball and appreciate the skill needed.
@159 cricket fielding has copied baseball. Are you being serious ? Correct me if I am wrong but don't the World Series All American Rounders players have a glove to protect their hand bless them when they are fielding? Try taking a catch at point coming off the bat at 90mph in a second with no glove as this less than average sportsman has. Anyway Ashes coming up. The greatest sports series!
