Meet the Author

Tom Mee, Jr.’s career as an acclaimed director of television sports began on the
playing field. Drafted out of high school in Minnesota by the Chicago White Sox, he

elected to play for legendary coach Dick “Chief” Siebert at the University of Minnesota.

Following a standout collegiate career (which he began by becoming the first Gopher

freshman ever to start a Big Ten opener), Tom was drafted in the 12th round by the Atlanta

Braves. After two seasons in the Braves organization, he signed with the Seattle Mariners.

He turned down an offer to manage in the Mariners minor league organization in order to

finish college. Tom’s television career began as a camera cable puller. He worked his way

through the business as a camera operator, stage manager and television producer for the

Minnesota Twins and joined the St. Louis Cardinals broadcast team in 1988. Since then he

has been an integral part of one of baseball’s highest-rated telecasts. Tom has also directed

most other major sports on the network, regional and local levels and is an Emmy Award

winner several times over.

    For anyone interested in how a baseball broadcast is done, this book offers a real inside look at the people and the skills involved. Tom Mee describes to the reader the tasks of each of the technicians and the preparation that is needed for a telecast.

    Want to know why a camera is positioned in a particular place? Who decides what game action is replayed and why? Curious about the equipment that is used in a modern broadcast? All of this is described in an entertaining and informative way.

    There is also a verbatim transcript of the directors call of a telecast. All of this offers the curious reader a real-world look into the business of broadcasting baseball on television.

    For those of us who work in the industry, this is still an informative and often humorous read. I highly recommend this book if you have an interest in the art and technique of broadcasting sports
