I have a question in regards to the camera work/broadcasts during baseball games. Being a Cubs fan, I pretty much catch at least some of most of the television broadcasts of Cubs games throughout the year (minus some day games of course). My friends and I have consistently noticed that the camera work during Cubs games happens to capture some "high quality" fan shots throughout the game. In fact, it is so blatant at points, that we just call it the "hot chick cam." Please tell me that i'm not the only person who realizes this!
My greater question revolves around the logistics of the camera work for baseball broadcasts. I know that the Cubs games that are done by Len and Bob span several different channels here in Chicago, but I am guessing that they have the same broadcast team, including camera men/women, regardless of what station they are on. So, when Fox/ESPN come into town, I know that they have their own broadcast team, but do they bring in their own cameras and camera men/women to shoot the game? What about the instances where the game is on Fox/ESPN, but the game ends up being on Comcast with Len and Bob locally? I really doubt that there are 2 camera teams shooting the same game. Or is it by stadium? Do the Cubs take their own camera crew on the road with them? Or do they rely on the crew at the road stadium? If this is the case, why is it that the Cubs seem to have such a sweet "Hot Chick Cam" compared to other broadcasts? Or am I just not watching enough of other teams to realize that this is just a part of baseball?
