Live MLB Blog: 20.00 BST Sunday 30 May

by Matt Smith

Welcome to the first live blog here at BGB.  As noted in my intro post yesterday, this is a new feature and today’s event is something of a trial run.  I hope this will turn into a regular part of our content, be it live blogging specific games or, as with today, just commenting on the live games as they happen while discussing anything else that comes to mind.

One update from yesterday’s post is that I’ve found a way to insert the CoverItLive window into the website, as you’ll see below!  All you need to do is click on the button once the live blog has started and you will be able to follow the conversation.  Feel free to join in by submitting comments via the CoverItLive window (not the comments box at the bottom of the post). 

Once the live blog is over (probably 22.00 BST) then the window below will become an archive section where you can read back all of the comments.  So if you can’t make it tonight, or have to leave part way through, you can always come back and read it again.  I’ll re-write this post then to reflect it being ‘after the event’ .

I unfortunately couldn’t be around to follow the live Blog as it happened but having just gone through the replay I wanted to give the idea and the execution a resounding thumbs up.

Your comments, especially back and forth between each other, were a great mix of knowledgeable insight (to me at least) and banter.

What (depressingly) little time I do get to follow baseball tends to be spent (depressingly) muttering over the latest fortunes of The Cubs but BaseballGB, and now features like the Blog, gives me the chance for a more rounded view of the league as a whole.

Great effort guys. I’ll be tuning in for the next Live Blog.

Hi Colin. Thanks very much for your positive feedback. That’s great to read. As noted, last night’s was a bit of a trial run to see if it would work and it was definitely a lot of fun to do. So I’m sure we’ll be doing more in the near future.
