It isn't your great-grandfather's game anymore. Modern baseball has been shaped by many events since the game was invented 200 years ago. Can you name them without looking at the graphic below?
Ok, you weren't around, and you didn't know that 21 million hot dogs are sold at baseball games each year. It's understandable, since most of us barely have enough time these days to remember our own cell phone number.

Star colts Sizzling, Your Song and Epaulette will bid to continue the recent dominance of three-year-olds when bidding for victory in the $1million Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday.

Racism is an ugly and repulsive belief that millions of people around the world still believe in this poisonous mentality. Therefore, it is always good to hear of stories of people who took a stand against racism despite what people thought of them. Today’s story is about two professional baseball players. One that had to face the evils of racism everywhere he went…and another who decided to show people how he felt about racism and be a friend to his teammate.
Jackie Robinson was the first black to play major league baseball. Breaking baseball’s color barrier, he faced jeering... Read More
Trainer Nicky Henderson invited the press to an open day at his Seven Barrows stable earlier this week and it was impossible not to be impressed by the wealth of talent on display heading into the sport's centrepiece meeting, the 2013 Cheltenham Festival.Henderson is aiming around “35-40” at the festival in March and, with several of these already priced up as market leader for their respective targets, he is understandably a short-priced favourite to be the leading trainer over the four days, but what are the chances of repeating last season's feat of seven winners?That's as many winners as...
