3D-glasses-404_675044cI don’t understand technical stuff. Anything with wires and plugs is beyond my comprehension.

I can hook up my DVD player, but I have no idea how it can tell the difference between a Big Lebowski DVD and a Shawshank Redemption DVD. Aren’t all those shiny surfaces the exact same?

This is my way of explaining that I don’t know anything about a 3D telecast except what’s in this press release. Apparently, tonight’s game and tomorrow’s game are going to be shown on YES in 3D. It sounds pretty cool, and I wish I knew more about it, but I don’t. Here’s the latest release from the network.

Blue Ridge Communications, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, Service Electric Broadband Cable, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS have joined DIRECTV in distributing the YES Network’s historic July 10 and 11 3D Yankees-Mariners telecasts from Safeco Field in Seattle. The July 10 and 11 games will be the first Major League Baseball games to be televised in 3D. DIRECTV and Panasonic will be presenting sponsors of the two 3D telecasts.

The Saturday, July 10 3D game telecast will begin at 10:00 p.m. ET, and the Sunday, July 11 3D game telecast will begin at 4:00 p.m. ET. YES will also produce traditional HD telecasts of both games.

Dave Niehaus, the Mariners play-by-play man who is also a member of the broadcasters wing of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, will handle play-by-play duties for the 3D telecasts along with fellow Mariners voice Dave Sims. YES’ Ken Singleton will provide color commentary.

That’s not an Associated Press photo. I just found it on the Internet and thought it was funny. If I somehow stole it or violated some kind of copyright, that’s my bad.
