OCTOBER BASEBALL
Andy Petitte ptiches for the Yankees tonight, which means we'll be treated to one of my favorite camera shots in baseball -- from behind home plate we see have a close-up shot of Petttte's face, except all you can see is the brim of his hat. Then he slowly looks up for the sign, and you can see his eyes bearing in on the catcher. Then he starts his delivery.
It's a cool visual, and seems even moreso when the Yanks are in their road grey uniforms. You'll notice that the networks don't use this shot nearly as much for other pitchers.
