Netting Obstructs Cameras at Yankee Stadium

Apr 16, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Taller nets behind the backstop at the new Yankee Stadium in New York are creating a problem for television producers because they obstruct a key view of the game, the New York Times reports. “During the exhibition game at the stadium against the Cubs on April 4, the supporting wires and netting formed a fishnet shroud over the camera shot,” the paper says. “On replays of Mark Teixeira’s two home runs, the home plate camera was used to show the balls soar into the stands. As it zoomed in, the netting grew increasingly vivid and annoying.”
