CSN New England will be televising the Cape Cod League All-Star Game on Friday, only trying something a little different with it.
Instead of the usual view of the pitcher and batter from the center-field camera, the broadcast will feature two main play-by-play cameras, one from above first base and the other from above third. The goal is to be able to show the ball being hit, the play being made (or not made) and the batter running, all at the same time.
“I think it just gives a different overall, psychological feeling to our viewers about the game,” said Mike Glenn, who is co-directing the broadcast. “And I think people who are casual viewers of the game, or those who think they don’t like baseball, if they watch a game using this method, they’re going to look at it and go, ‘Wow, I had no idea all that is going on.’”
At the very least, it sounds like an interesting experiment to give watchers a better feel of what it’s actually like to watch a game from the ballpark, in this case, Fenway. And since the Cape Cod League All-Star Game is sure to feature several future major leaguers anyway, it’s worth watching regardless. Look for it on CSN New England at 7 p.m. EDT on Friday night.
