I have completed my first 3 games (spring training) of the 2017 season. The crew has been great and the telecasts have been fairly clean. Fairly is a good description when it comes to spring training telecasts. As the followers of this blog know, last years game/telecasts were greatly affected because of 2 strokes that occurred with our long term, great Producer Mike. Update: Mike will be our Producer for home games at Busch Stadium this season. I can't wait for that - can't wait!! However, before our 2nd telecast of this season, our graphics operator died of a heart attack 30 yards from the TV truck as he was reporting for work. Last season, we experienced Mike's strokes and the loss of a loved home TV member who died in his sleep. 2017 - no more please.
