After this year’s Little League World Series, ESPN might want to reconsider how they place their cameras on the field. During Saturday’s third place game between Tennessee and Panama, a camera was shattered after it took a foul ball to the lens, which is the second time it has happened this year.
A Tennessee player cracked a foul ball back towards the backstop and it smashed off the camera placed strategically behind home plate to give fans a different look.
It made a loud bang and the commentators new immediately that the camera was shattered.
Luckily, ESPN can foot the bill for these cameras, which are likely very expensive. However, I am sure they will rethink their placement of cameras on the field during next year’s Little League World Series.
