Five facts summarise the British Baseball Federation (BBF) National Baseball League (NBL) Finals: 

  1. Played on the hottest day ever recorded for an NBL Final 31C (91F). 
  2. Streamed and recorded on the BBF YouTube Channel. 
  3. A record for the BBF Channel, i.e., watched in 39 countries. 
  4. Finals MVP: Carlos Dominguez. 
  5. London Mets, win a record sixth-time National Baseball League Championship. 

The London Capitals (the second seed) to the regular season, saw them compete in the NBL Finals against the London Mets. 

The game was between two cross-town (London) rivals. However, in the end, the London Mets, pulled away to take the NBL Championship title. 

The NBL Playoffs weekend was a culmination of two days of top British Baseball Action. For example, Saturday, 24th we witnessed the first two games in the NBL Postseason: 

GAME ONE: Essex Arrows vs London Mets (winner). Watch the YouTube recording link

GAME TWO: Herts Falcons vs London Capitals (winner). Watch the YouTube recording link

A spokesperson, for the British Baseball Federation, said "The showdown between the London Capitals vs London Mets (25th August) was a great conclusion to an exciting summer of NBL baseball. We want to extend our gratitude to all four teams taking part in the NBL regular season and in the Championship Weekend. Considering our British Baseball Federation YouTube Channel was watched in 39 countries for the weekend, it shows the interest in British Baseball is growing. One of our strategic aim as the National Governing Body of baseball is to promote our sport. As we extend the reach of our leagues, through our YouTube Channel, we are proud to showcase the best of British Baseball. 

However, we cannot do the mentioned without some great baseball action and representation from our member clubs (like Essex, Herts, Capitals, the Mets and 26 others). We want to congratulate the London Mets on their sixth National Title. An excellent testament to a great club and team. Further, we want to say congratulations to the Finals MVP Carlos Dominguez." 

Focus now, turns to the Single-A and Double-A Championships on the 7th and 8th September.
