We had a very smooth telecast today. Our TD is the Royals TD and I have worked with him many times. We pretty much know and trust each other. A director must trust his TD knowing that he or she will be able to execute any command. Every TD should trust the director knowing that the director will never put them into a position where they can't execute a command. We had that trust today. The result of this trust was a smooth telecast. Smooth despite the fact that this was a very sloppy game. Early spring training games are generally sloppy because the established Major League players may only get 1 or 2 at-bats and are replaced by "up and comers". The less the experience the players the sloppier the game. The "up and comers" are surely talented, you just can't trust them to provide a Major League effort.
