friday april 10

today i was at the rogers centre and was on the field working to set up and calibrate the pitch fx system for the coming season. while we were working on that, pa announcer tim langton and the camera guys were rehearsing various scenarios, including between-inning promos and batter introductions. at one point, langton introduced a hypothetical batter and the camera man panned from the on-deck circle to the plate, where i happened to be standing at the time, showing up on the jumbotron as if i were the batter. if you'd told me when i was eight years old that this scenario would play out, i think i would've been pretty excited about it, even knowing that it would happen in a mostly-empty stadium as i held a measuring tape in my hands rather than a baseball bat.
