lol, indeed baseball isn't really the best and i'm not sure if anyone outside of the US actually plays baseball games. Isn't it that game that the girls used to play at school, where they run round cones...well rounders, baseball it's all the same really!

You'll find that the ESPN range by Sega are the best here, with EA Sports also doing some passable renditions of these sports.
By the way there's an ESPN Baseball 2K4 game out, which if the rest of the range is anything to go by should be a good rendition of the (allbeit tedious) sport. See here for the range although not sure if UK shops stock it:
