Baseball stays on the air in the UK

For those of you who weren't watching Game 5 last night over here on you may of missed the surprising but excellent news regarding coverage. In past years the channel has never had a long term deal to show baseball and went on a year by year basis and usually done a deal just before the season started, this year though this are different. will show Major League Baseball for both the 2007 and 2008 seasons with the studio team of Jonny Gould and Josh Chetwynd continuing for the foreseeable future.

This is excellent news for fans of the sport in the UK and with talk of ESPN buying NASN from Setanta and moving the channel on to the standard Sky package and off the stand-alone channel status it currently has, these could be exciting times for baseball fans in the UK.
