Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw was forced to leave Saturday’s game against the Rays after a scary moment at second base.
Game Kids A. J. Pollock Jersey At the top of the second inning, Shaw attempted to steal second base, and succeeded. Although in the process of taking second, the catcher’s throw hit him in the unprotected part of his neck. Making matters even worse, Rays second baseman Eric Sogard appears to have hit Shaw in the face with his glove at the same time.
Athletic trainers from both teams came out to check on Shaw as he stayed down for several minutes. Thankfully he was able to get up and walk off the field, but one beat writer said Shaw was wobbly and was limping slightly as well.
I think big picture, there’s more than one way to call a ballgame, Kenny told SN. I think this is one way of doing it. It’s not that hard to throw more than just one ballplayer on a broadcast. ‘I’m a play-by-play guy, here’s my ballplayer.’
If you brought in a guy who is actually an analyst, not a second player, not a former GM, or a pitcher and a second baseman. How about someone that actually studies this stuff, to kind of give some instant context to what’s happening?
Kenny did mention potential pitfalls in doing these broadcasts regularly, with stepping on one another during the broadcast or the program getting a bit too busy being among the chief concerns.
Game Kids T. J.

In fact, Kenny believes it would be a step toward reinventing what baseball fans perceive as a broadcast.
