Was poking around and found this article from April 12th

https://fox2now.com/2019/04/12/fox-spor ... telecasts/

Quote:
“Last season we added the live strike zone box, to show fans pitch location and velocity. But from our previous angle at Busch, the strike zone graphic sometimes superimposed on the pitcher’s hand, glove or back of his head,” FSM spokesman Geoff Goldman wrote to FOX2 in an email. “So in the offseason we worked with the Cardinals to move to more of an offset view like you see in other stadiums, and similar to what national TV uses when they broadcast from Busch.”

Goldman said the angle was adjusted after Saturday’s game and it will be monitored and tweaked moving forward. The new perspective is now the same width as last year’s view and not as offset to the third base side.

“We work hard each season to add new technology like pitch tracking, additional super slow-motion cameras and most recently bullpen cameras, to provide fans one of the best telecasts in baseball,” Goldman wrote.


I'm not sure why the strike zone graphic being over the pitcher is a big problem. Once the pitch is released they're usually out of the way.

It's distracting when the shortstop is running around at the bottom of the screen. They need the old angle stat.

I read this a few days ago. I never even liked that strike zone graphic. Do away with it.

this...I don't mind either way if they keep it or get rid of it...but if that's the reason, get rid of it and go back to the old angle

on close calls they can always replay it/slow it down with the strike zone graphic

Lies. There is a broader conspiracy at work here

I like seeing the persistent batters box and the original angle.
