For many fans who can’t afford tickets or live in another part of the country, television will be their window to the new Yankee Stadium.
But how good will that window be?
Word is that the new Stadium is not particularly conducive to television cameras. The camera behind home plate, for instance, will have to shoot through the protective netting. Unlike the steeper old Stadium, there is no position to get a clean shot from that angle.
YES folks also say the camera locations down the lines are not optimal. There is already talk that YES, ESPN and other broadcast entities will request changes.
The Yankees own a percentage of YES, so you would think they would have worked closely with the broadcasters to make sure they were happy.
Presumably, these problems will have solutions. The old Stadium always looked so good on television. You would think the new park should look even better.
