MLB Network is airing a cool-sounding show tonight at 9PM. It’s called “The Third Team: All-Access 2012 World Series,” and it features behind-the-scenes audio and video of Fieldin Culbreth, Gerry Davis, Brian Gorman, Dan Iassogna, Brian O’Nora and Joe West doing their World Series thing. A preview:
There are one-on-ones with the umps too, including their takes on the job itself. An actual quote from Joe West during the doc:
“I can honestly say, that whenever any umpire makes a mistake, a little bit of him dies inside.”
If that’s true, West is a zombie!
Haha, I kid because I’m a kidder. And because, really dudes, Joe West makes a whole bunch of mistakes.
Beyond that, though, this does sound like a cool doc. Check it out.
