The players are back on the diamond and ready to play ball. Barry's going for the homerun record, Rocket Roger keeps on winning and the Cubs have fallen out of the playoff race.

After a few days off to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks, baseball is back on. Barry's still going for the homerun record, Rocket Roger keeps on winning and the Cubs have fallen out of the playoff race.
1The penant races are over in the American League. Seattle, the New York Yankees, Cleveland and Oakland have all clinched playoff spots. The Mariners could set a major league record for wins in a season. The record is 116 set by the Cubs in 1906. The Mariners have 106 wins with 16 games to play. In the National League, the toughest race is in the West division. Arizona, San Francisco and LA are all within three games of each other. The final weekend of the season should be a blast.
1The Chicago Cubs are fading fast as the season winds down. That shouldn't be a surprise for Cubs fans who've been waiting since 1908 for the Cubs to win a World Series. They're more likely to have an alien encounter than see their Cubs nab the championship trophy.
1New York Yankees pitcher, Rocket Roger Clemens, has been nearly unbeatable all season. He's now 20 - 1 after beating the Chicago White Sox on September 20th. Roger is the first pitcher in major league history to go 20 - 1. But he says it doesn't mean all that much because of the terrorist attacks in New York. "It just doesn't have the same feeling it would've two weeks ago," says Clemens.
1Barry Bonds is on track to break Mark McGwire's homerun record. Barry smacked his 64th homerun on September 20th against the Houston Astros. Every time he hits a homerun for the rest of the season, he's going to donate $10,000 to the United Way. (Maybe he's not such a jerk after all.)
1You've probably noticed all players are wearing American flags on their caps and jerseys. It's a tribute to all the people who were killed or injured on September 11th.
