Baseball on TV

Couldn't agree more. From my vantage point in the press box you get to see the breaks outfielders make on fly balls and my personal favorite, the positioning of the defense which you only get to see on television if the third baseman or first baseman is 10 feet from the plate.

I'd also love to see a third or first base camera angle for a few pitches each inning as well as views from the left and right field stands. Occasionally a producer will get caught with an angle other than the centerfield camera and then they usually needlessly switch back to the angle just in time to catch the end of the pitch making sure you missed it by the time your eyes adjust.

The two innovations I really do like however, are the K-Zone on ESPN and the mid-game interviews with managers and pitching coaches.
