In this week's programme, Rob Cameron examines the growing interest in that quintessentially American sport - baseball. Few people know there's a small but thriving baseball scene in the Czech Republic, with interest in the sport dating back to Communist times. Today there are two leagues and a national team which has beaten some of Europe's top clubs. The home of baseball in Prague is the southern district of Krc - where the country's top extra-league team Sokol Krc as well as the national team is based. Rob was given a tour of the facilities and talked to some of the players as well as Sokol's American coach.
