Those of us who don’t have cable TV — or even MLB.tv — often resort to MLB GameDay for pitch-by-pitch updates. (The way we sit with baited breath waiting for that next red or green or blue dot to appear is pathetic, really.)
GameDay uses a stock avatar for all batters — the avatar varies only based on the batter’s handedness. This can lead to confusion as to who is batting, especially if GameDay updates some info more quickly that it updates other bits, which it often does.
I propose anatomically correct avatars for MLB GameDay. Considering it took me only about seven hours to create this anatomically correct Prince Fielder avatar, I’m sure the highly trained and highly paid tech peeps at MLB can do it in no time.
