Pirates Debut Excellent New Center-Field Camera

The Pittsburgh Pirates, who featured probably the worst center-field camera angle in all of baseball last season, appear to have changed that for the 2012 campaign. It’s almost definitely a top-five camera, at this point.

    The only issue I can see with this is if the pitcher’s body will block the view of the pitch as it crosses home plate. Yes, many fall off to the side or bend over on their follow-through, but for some (such as Anthony Vasquez*) who don’t bend over, I could see this actually being an issue.

    * Yes, he was the first pitcher I could think of, and yet I’m not sure if he’ll ever see the major leagues again.

    I was so excited to see it on the first pitch, and then have it stay beyond it. Root had played with it maybe a game or two last year I think, and that was always the worst part of the broadcasts.

    Sidenote: cool thing you’re able to do on SONY’s MLB: The Show is move the camera angles on your own, so I never had the shitty camera angles when I played at PNC.

    I disagree…all the action is squeezed in the middle…espn showed the marlins game last note….perfect centerfield angle….

    They’re still using the old angle for the “away” camera. Watching CSN on MLB.tv and it’s nearly the same angle as before
