Description:

I love baseball. When I was "little" I wanted to be a baseball player. I never was quite that good, but I still love the game. For all of you other baseball lovers, I've created a little widget that will grab text from ESPN's Scoreboard and display it on your desktop.

Features

Grabs scores from your favorite team

Auto updates scores

like it a lot. it's easy to configure and change it to any team you want, as well as font size and color, how much data you want to display etc. One little thing: it took me a while to understand that you need to install the 'linx' web browser in order to have it working.
