Anyone notice the small change in the Opening Montage Video? I'm not quite sure when this happened (sometime recently), but I noticed it tonight at the beginning of the broadcast.

Steve Stone is now included. They show him in the dark blue softball uni after the Nancy Faust shot and before the disco records explode.

I've seen this video so many times since 2004 when it debuted that small changes stick out like a sore thumb. I checked out an older version of the video. He replaces a shot of, I think, Chet Lemon and the Sox first base coach circa '77 (someone check me on that). Old video here, look at the 2:06 mark for the old clip. This was from Opening Day this year, so the Sox changed it sometime recently

Interesting enough, with the help of Youtube, I found a clip from July 5th with the old video, so it must have changed very recently.

Haha, I found the new video! Stone is shown after Nancy at about the 2:04 mark. This was uploaded recently from a WGN broadcast...

I saw it before game tonight and thought, damn Im getting old that I missed Stone all these years. Its one of those things if you blink at the right moment you miss it.

I was thinking, if they put Stone on why not Farmer and Jackson?

Missed that at the park last night, saw it on The U tonight. But I noticed last night they added highlights from this year at the end save for Dunn's shot off Verlander. Props for that.

Whenever they're on WCIU, maybe WGN too, but definitely the CIU games.

I think they only show it before WGN games

EDIT - Should have read the whole thread, makes sense they'd show it before WCIU games, too, since I think those are produced by WGN anyway, just broadcast on Channel 26.
