Because the Blues were playing the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup playoffs in St. Louis and the Cardinals were playing the Pirates at Busch Stadium, the baseball side had a different truck and a totally different crew (except for 2 members)for our telecast tonight. And an exceptional telecast it was. Eight of my nine manned camera operators were from out of town and had never worked a Cards telecast before. The tape room was made up of people who had never worked on our show before. Kudos to these TV teammates! They were great! Audio performed at a high level despite never working on our show before. Our truck was no where near the quality of our usual home truck which was doing hockey. A very nice telecast under unusual circumstances.
