We have had to come from behind against two really weak teams this week to pull out victories…but some how, some way, maybe good things are ahead for this bunch…

They removed the CF camera and both cameras behind the dugouts. Only two cameras are on top of the media box.

Only thing I can think of is it’s a money issue. However, camera operators are Valenti school volunteers so it isn’t a wage thing. I hope, with the new contract, that they’re willing to upgrade the video because it’s unacceptable at this point.
