London Mets down to ‘Final Four’
A baseball team based in Finsbury Park have the chance to become National Champions this weekend.
The London Mets’ men’s baseball team will play in the “Final Four” of the National Championships at Roundshaw Playing Fields, Croydon, as runners up of the National League South.
They play their first game at 10am on Saturday (1st September), and, pending a win, will play their second game at 4pm.
It is the first time that the team, who count Channel 5 baseball pundit Josh Chetwynd as one of their star pitchers, have taken part in the National League, though the club have been running several other youth and mens teams at Finsbury park since 1994.
