Korea is just about in, but the last two spots are still up for grabs. And South Africa can wait for another year.

  • Germany edged South Africa, 4-3.
  • Korea routed Spain, 14-5.
  • Canada scored a run in the 9th and another in the 10th to beat Taiwan, 6-5.
  • Mexico set back Australia's chances with a 7-4 win.

Standings (with 3 games to go): Korea 4-0, Canada and Taiwan 3-1, Australia and Germany 2-2, Spain and Mexico 1-3, South Africa 0-4.

Is BB a certified sport or only an exhibition at the '08 Olympics, and is it true that this could be the last gasp?

1 it's certified. it was exhibition in the 80s IIRC.

and yes it's most likely the last time it'll be played in a looooooong time if not ever (main reason being since it collides with MLB season non of the true pro plays)


and nooooooooooooo Taiwan lost arrragh. heart wreching game. Taiwan took a 5-4 lead in the 6th on a 2 out 3 run bomb ( Mariner prospect K.H Lo hit a strait away bomb outta here off fellow M's prospect Jon Lockwood) but they blew the lead with 2 out in the 9th and hit into a DP with 2 on to end the game... sad.. now game against Aussie is a must win.

also, late in the game a Canadian player steamrolled over the Taiwan catcher at home (he was still out) and caused some pretty big tension as fans were ready to torch the stadium :P

the Candian leadoff guy is a bald short scrappy guy that scored the tieing run in the 9th... and he did back flips on the side after he scored ...

a very exciting (if heartbreaking) game
