Nationals fans with game 4 or 5 tickets must have been thinking they had a chance of seeing it clinched after the first two. Bit of a letdown in reality.

Washington win Game 7 to win the first World Series for the Nationals/Expos franchise

Every game was won by the away side

As I said, tough to root for DC teams, but I did want this result and couldn't ask for a better series.

Only watched games 1,2,6,7 but enjoyed it immensely with history being made on a few fronts. Normally root for the AL team except for the Red Sox (sorry UKR) but wanted the Nats to win this one. Brilliant from Strasburg all post-season and Juan Soto looks a real talent and seems a nice kid to boot.

They'll be feeling better than Astros fans with game 6 or 7 tickets now!

Calling Toronto Villa. How easy is it to get tickets for rounders games? The missus wants to see a bout (is that what they call them) and I'm hoping to take her to the Blue Jays when we're in Toronto next year. They've got a couple of regular season games while we're out there. My only knowledge of baseball crowds - and their size - comes from the Springfield Isotopes and whoever the Capital City Goofball supports. Is there a particular bit of the ground that's better to be in?

Should be piss easy to get tickets, this season just finished they averaged less than 22k in a stadium that holds nearly 50k. Behind home plate is best, Red Sox will probably be more precise as to which level.

Try to sit between the bases behind home plate. If prices are too expensive or there's no seats available, go upwards rather than outwards.

Getting decent tickets to see the Blue Jays shouldn't be much of a problem unless the Red Sox or Yankees are in town.

Cheers. It's St Louis heading north when I'm there. Oddly, St Louis Cardinals were the losing side at my first American football game.

Now, to continue my education, what's the Home Plate?

Try to get a seat that has a view something like this
