You may have heard of ESPN+, the new streaming service that provides live coverage of Major League Baseball games. During the month of July, ESPN will stream at least one game from 27 different MLB teams. This includes the defending World Series Champion Atlanta Braves, as well as the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Guardians, and Houston Astros. However, local blackout restrictions apply.
Inside Pitch on ESPN Baseball focuses on the individual pitching styles of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The new interactive experience draws from existing data and existing content to create a unique experience. The interactive site brings viewers into the bullpen and showcases the precision and skill required to throw an MLB pitch. The site uses video and photography to showcase pitch mechanics.
The data collected by the Statcast system is used to create the visuals that viewers see during games. SportsMEDIA Technology creates the graphics used by ESPN. While the company is suing MLB for patent infringement, the new feature is likely to incorporate data on pitch movement. It will also feature new pitch-tracking graphics, such as the K-Zone 3D.
The show will also feature highlights from the World Baseball Classic, College World Series, Minor League Baseball, and the Little League World Series. Inside Pitch will feature a host named Peter Gammons. It will also feature the Leading Off segment, which gives viewers the day’s top news in the world of baseball. The segment also features a host of experts providing commentary and analysis.
Inside Pitch on ESPN Baseball does get a lot of things right. The AI is surprisingly fair. For instance, balls that are hit high in the zone tend to be pop flies, while balls hit low turn into grounders. Breaking pitches, on the other hand, are more likely to result in weak grounders or bloop hits. The base paths are also aggressive.
K-Zone pitch tracker
In 2015, ESPN introduced its live virtual strike zone over each pitch. This new feature has become a staple of MLB coverage, and it has even won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement. The feature is powered by Statcast data and can be viewed from any angle. The new feature allows viewers to get the most detailed analysis of every pitch.
The K-Zone pitch tracker on ESPN baseball offers several features. The cursor can change size depending on the game situation and the pitching motion, as well as the pressure or speed of the pitch. It is also possible to view the cursor for a different team and the game mode.
The K-Zone on ESPN is a virtual strike zone that is based on three tracking cameras. While this feature makes it easier to determine the strike zone of batters, it is not as accurate as the real thing. The umpires’ strike zones have tightened in recent years. The box depicting the strike zone is not the actual zone; it represents the umpire’s perception.
The hit tracker debuted on ESPN during the Wild Card Game in 2018. The feature is now regularly featured during Sunday Night Baseball and the Home Run Derby. It explores the kinetics of a hit and shows analytics of launch angle, exit velocity, and apex. It can also be viewed in 3D.
Sunday Night Countdown
Sunday Night Countdown is a pre-game show that leads into ESPN baseball telecasts each Sunday. It features interviews with top baseball players, web gems, and replays of Sunday home runs. It’s also home to ESPN MLB analyst Karl Ravech and reporter Tim Kurkjian.
The two-hour show will feature a wide variety of baseball analysis, fantasy games, and predictions. The broadcast will also feature special guests. In addition to the MLB doubleheader, Sunday Night Countdown will also include a special pre-game game with the San Francisco Giants against the Oakland Athletics.
In addition, the show also features previews of upcoming episodes and interesting baseball statistics. Fans can also tune into its Ridiculous Plays of the Week segment for highlights of the most bizarre plays and statistics of the week. The show also has a segment dedicated to the greatest home runs in MLB history, called Greatest Home Runs. The program features five of the greatest home runs by different franchises, as well as the Top 10 home runs of all time.
The Sunday Night Countdown has been on ESPN for 15 years. It was first aired on ESPN Radio in 1998 and is now hosted by Chris Singleton. He replaced Gary Thorne as the play-by-play voice in 2008. The two previous hosts were Kevin Kennedy and David Campbell.
Sunday from the Seats
Sunday from the Seats is an innovative new production for Sunday Night Baseball that allows viewers to experience the game from an unusual location inside a baseball stadium. The initiative was first tried at Fenway Park’s famous Green Monster in 2014. The production team works with the teams to choose a special location, then delivers all the necessary equipment for a traditional booth broadcast to the stands. The production team also adds audio technicians to the location, and runs fiber connectivity back to the truck.
In addition, Sunday Night Baseball will air the ALDS rematch between the Yankees and Red Sox. The broadcast team, which includes Alex Rodriguez, Matt Vasgersian, and Jessica Mendoza, will call the game from the Crawford Boxes in left field. The broadcast is also available on ESPN Deportes and the ESPN App.
