MiLB.TV Feed Doubles as Helpful Traffic Webcam

Almost notable prospects Stephen Landazuri and Dario Pizzano played for the Double-A Jackson Generals today, the latter recording his fifth home run in just over 100 plate appearances for that Mariners affiliate (box).

Of perhaps even greater interest, however — at least to anyone who finds himself compelled to drive along I-40 outside of Jackson, Tennessee — is that the Generals MiLB.TV feed also serves as an entirely useful traffic webcam for that same stretch of American freeway.

The author can report with some certainty, for example — owing to the GIF embedded here — that at 1:05pm ET today traffic was running smoothly along the aforementioned highway. As for the conditions on that same interstate at the moment, this is a different questions.

This is the exact reason for which NotGraphs was created. We just never knew it until now.

Someone needs to address the issue of the Third Baseman. He appears lost, forlorn.

Look at that camera shot. With today’s technology, it is a shame the quality of MiLB.tv is so awful. It’s an awesome product in concept, but only about 20% of the teams participate and the video quality is pathetic.

It looks like they are playing in a disused golf driving range, complete with ripped saggy netting
