(The Cape league is perhaps the best known of the summer college leagues)

It will be on DirecTV 630 and on many Comcast systems nationwide at & PM Eastern on July 29

It should be interesting to watch.

The advent of HDTV certainly makes this more plausible. Would have been hard to have the master scene they wanted back in the day when everyone had a 22-inch piece of ****. Now that I have a 48-inch 1080p televsion, this really might work.

Still not going to watch a bunch of college jack-offs, though.

Many of those players will make the show

Beckham was in the Cape League only 4 years ago for example

As long as it doesn't involve AT&T multi-view, it's OK ny me.

I can't get to the link because of a firewall. What is so different about it?

... uses two main play-by-play cameras – one above first base, and another above third base. The goal is to create that “master scene” and show the ball being hit and the play being made at the same time, while seeing the baserunner’s every move.It's a nice idea, but I would miss seeing the movement of the pitch and where it's caught relative to the plate. I think using a camera over home plate facing out to the field would create a better "master scene," but it would have the same problem as this idea.
