The South Australian Baseball League (SABL) is heating up with just over a handful of rounds remaining and there is plenty of action to catch with rising stars, past heroes and local studs all lining up alongside guns from the Adelaide Bite, proudly presented by SA Power Networks.

Here's a quick look at the games you can catch this weekend in both the SABL and SAWBL, and where you can find your favourite Bite players.

Fans will be treated to a 2016/17 Grand Final rematch this Sunday as Port Adelaide hosts West Torrens, in a battle of first vs second. Thanks to a midweek win over Henley & Grange the Magpies are ahead by one game, but the Eagles have a game in hand.

Both teams have been jostling for first place all season and anything but a sweep to Port Adelaide would keep the two teams fighting until the end.

Meanwhile, a six-way tussle for the remaining finals positions has settled out in recent weeks with Kensington, Woodville, Goodwood and Glenelg all comfortably in the six. Unfortunately for East Torrens their season looks to be over while Sturt is three games back in seventh.

With Goodwood edging out rivals Kensington on Tuesday, the Cardinals have lost much of their buffer in third, but the Tigers and Senators have bounced back to winning ways after suffering some serious dips in form.

Glenelg welcomes Goodwood for their Round 34/35 doubleheader in amust-see fixture for their fans, while Kensington hosts Sturt and Woodville is at home to East Torrens.

At the wrong end of the table, Henley & Grange, Southern Districts and Adelaide are fighting their own battles to see who will finish highest, and who can cause the most upsets. This Sunday the 11th placed Angels host the ninth placed Hawks.

Rebuilding in 12th, Golden Grove has shown promise ahead of their trip out west to the 10th placed Rams, while Northern Districts has hit a hot patch.

After going 0-20, the Reds have gone 3-1-8 and while they will again settle for last, it's a great run for a team that has struggled for a long time.

Over in the SAWBL, Friday night will bring some intense contests in the final round with four teams fighting for three places in the top four.

The Green Hurricanes are safe in first ahead of their game with Adelaide at Diamond Sports, although Glenelg will be sweating on other results having played their final game last week.

The have 16 points but wins to Goodwood (away to Port Adelaide), Gawler (Diamond Sports v Henley & Grange) and Golden Grove (Diamond Sports v Tigers) would sensationally see the heavyweights fall out of finals.

Looking to finish as high as possible, Kensington hosts Purple Thunder while Flinders University and Onkaparinga also complete the four games scheduled for a blockbuster night at Diamond Sports.

Make sure to head out and support your local women ahead of next week's semi-finals!
