Baseball Scores

Submitted By Evan Coleman (fiftyfour123)


Finally! Updating baseball scores for Adium!!!

It gets scores from's XML feeds

To use it type %_mlb{team,link?}

you have to use the teams abbreiviation to get a list type %_mlb{help,no}

Please Post Any Bugs You Find Here! Thanks!

I am also open to any requests you have.

If you are going to use my code, please give me credit.



  • Updated for 2011 baseball season


  • Completely rewritten
  • Now the script gets all the info from's XML feeds and all the parsing is done on my server, so it's much faster than the old script
  • Fixed getting the gameday link

yeah you do. Don't be humiliated. You can also put it in a status message, or in your profile.

I can't get this to work. %_mlb{help,no} works but when I type %_mlb{OAK,yes} it doesn't work. Nothing appears in my window and all I get is a sound, nothing is sent back to me from the aim server and the "You/they are typing" icon appears to think I'm still typing. What am I doing wrong?

the oakland a's aren't in the post season. When the team has no scheduled games for that day, then the script returns nothing.

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong, when I use the code %_mlb{BOS,no} this is what I get:°BOS @ BAL° °°7:05 PM°° It looks like the code is missing an endtag or something. So I wonder if it is my machine or some other issue. Any help would be appreciated; thanks.

I'm not getting a gameday link, even for games that are still going on. I only get the current score.

# by fiftyfour123 on 06/11/08 at 19:26:01

yeah, i'm aware of this. I'v been really busy lately so i haven't had time to get to it, but it will be done.

Can you make a script for NHL scores?
