I've got the game (on delay) on right now. Surprisingly, they actually are having the Australian announcers do it instead of the usual "Guys in New Jersey pretending they are there" that they usually do with international baseball. Australian accents calling baseball... this, I have to say, has never been heard by my ears before.

Also I've never heard before watching this: Announcers saying what the gambling lines on the game are and even (if I heard correctly) giving the number to a sports book. Phil, do they do this with all of the sports in Oz, or just the small ones that need money?
