More people in Australia play Baseball than Cricket. Last time I checked there are over 100 Australia players playing professional in the states. Even here in Perth last week a Major League Baseball Team signed a 16 year old. All MLB teams have full time scouts in Australia.

I'm a cricket tragic not a baseball fan but I'm jsut telling it how it is.

59 baseball clubs and 80 cricket clubs. I am sure those results would be echoed across other states. If you have a statement to make then at least back it up with some facts.

Since your now checkign data how about you check cricket crowds from the eighties onwards?

Massive decline.

Australia is far too multicutural for the general population to care about cricket.

You make the statement then you provide the facts to support it.

In a radius of 100k in Melbourne CBD there are over 870 cricket clubs and only 144 baseball clubs in the whole of Victoria.
I find it hard to believe that there are more people playing baseball.

Think the only sad twat is you.If you feel that way about Aussies you could always move back to the"brilliant"homeland.Fancy wasting a whole day watching freakin cricket in the first place.Now go back in a time warp to 2003 when we creamed their arses in The World Cup
It will happen again,just gotta wait until Richie McCraw retires before we have a chance

If you think people are crazy "wasting a day" watching cricket, what does that make you, wasting your time reading threads on something you clearly have no interest in?

All's fair in love and cricket, lets keep this to a level of friendly rivalry, no need for some of the hate that seems to underlying a few posts on the subject lately

Thanks
