Teaching The Game
The Birds beat the Bucs in 10 innings tonight at Busch Stadium by the score of 2 - 1. Walk-off wins are great fun to cut - perhaps the most fun. However, I enjoyed the different twist that we used in our telecast tonight. We utilized former Cardinal great Jim Edmonds as part of our announce team. The former centerfielder was not in the booth however. He was situated in the centerfield stands. This perspective really added to the "defense" theme of the show. I utilized a picture in picture through the fox box with the centerfielder in the box. This telecast was possibly the best teaching tool telecast I have ever been part of. Great fun indeed!
