Did anyone notice the "new" way the Sox went on to the field last night. They used to enter the field as a team, all at the same time, but last night every player was announced and ran on to the field individually. I think Buehrle was first, Sandy was second and then the infield and outfield. Thoughts?

BTW, the dollar dogs are killing my stomach today........

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that they blew off fireworks after everyone was introduced, before the start of the game. Kind of cheesy, I thought.

Sounds a bit cheesy to me too. I remember back in the 70's, the Twins would take thier positions as they were announced in the batting order. Apparently, the DH must have gone to the home plate area and tipped his cap.

The new introductions were alright, they got me more pumped up than usual, but they went on for too long. Scrap the fireworks, take up less time announcing the players, but keep the upbeat music.

Also, I noticed they had stats of batters on the upper deck banner signs. I had been to 6 games before Thursday and hadn't noticed that, so maybe that's a new change as well. I like it since 90% of the time the "scoreboard" is filled with messages and ads.

I never get to the park in time for the first pitch so I've missed the new intros. They blow off fireworks so I can see how late I am getting there.

At the end of games, they now invite fans to stay and watch the Ozzie post-game press conference.

I like the new Intros. The fans get into it - and it puts the focus on the field for the intros. This is clearly something Brooks brought from Madison St. I like it - I really do.

I like it as well. Didnt think that I would but it comes off well live. It should be electric when the place is packed.

They've been doing the intros that way since the start of the Twins series.

Personally, I like it. I find that it gets the crowd energized before the game. I'll admit, however, that when the Sox lose it seems kind of tacky.

They do the same thing in Anaheim (where I live) It seems to even get the fairweather fans into the game. I am all for it, if it brings more attention to the game.

Very. Wednesday was the first night. I like the intro's for the most part. But I draw the line if an inflated baseball is seen roaming the park dropping t-shirts. :D:

LOL! Usually I find myself at the BPB in the later innings. Are the patrons in the BPB able to see or hear the conference also?

No they don't. The players are announced separately in their batting order, but they take the field at the same time.
