    Good to hear about 4 games on Eurosport.
    We have to take baseball to a higher level. We need a pan european league of international teams or club teams. at an international level every interested country could have a team. Now enough for 3 divisions of six countries per division to allow the weaker countries progress and the strongest to get competitive baseball. One team relegated and promoted each season as I outlined before and with altering of this set up as the standards improve.
    Baseball has got to seize the bull by the horns. If we have only one league of the top six, how do we encourage the others to improve?

    Not as good as it seems. You se we in GB do not get proper Eurosport because our narrow minded football fans demand more and more football and won’t watch any foreign sports.So we get British Eurosport whatever that means . I know what it does mean there is no handball,volleyball, baseball, etc etc and more football,tennis and motor racing.
    So no baseball yet again.
