There was a big baseball thing on this week, by the way.

'It's kind of like rounders': Irish people watch baseball's greatest competition

Did you know the World Series final was on yesterday!?

.. of course not.

If you're like most Irish people, you look at American sports with bemusement, wondering why hours upon hours of gentle jogging with equal standing around is considered a good spectator activity.

Well, the folks from Facts are back with another Irish people on America video - and this time, they sat down to watch some of that grand old American pastime - baseball.

What do the scores mean? Why didn't he run to the place? What's going on? If you ever spent time on a J1 Visa in US sports bars, all these questions are probably very familiar.

The team at Facts are the same folks who brought us the Irish Water Charity appeal and the Irish folks testing American snack foods.

You could say they're knocking them out of the park.

(That's a baseball pun).
