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
