New York Mets’ color commentator Keith Hernandez had some fun playing around with a new feature in the broadcast booth.
Well, this is how a color commentator earns his paycheck. He brings the “color.”
Quite frankly, there are few analysts in baseball who do it better than former New York Mets first baseman Keith Hernandez.
During Tuesday night’s Mets-Marlins game, in the home half of the fourth inning, Hernandez decided to test out a crafty new broadcast tool referred to as a “telestrator.” Let’s just say he was a little too amused.
Taking the place of the uneven circles broadcasters usually draw to demonstrate what they are referring to, the telestrator has various features to highlight certain aspects of the game in a neat fashion.
Hernandez, clearly not toying with it prior to the contest, took it to the SNY telecast to provide some humor, testing out the options one by one.
Broadcast partners Gary Cohen and Ron Darling got a kick out of the antics, making it hard not crack a smile. Yes, plain and simple, these three do it the best.
