On Sunday, 29 May 2011, BaseballGB writers, Matt Smith and Joe Gray, chose the Herts Falcons versus Croydon Pirates NBL game as their game to watch for the weekend. Apart form the baseball action from around the leagues on that weekend, Matt’s weekly British Baseball Beat included a very enjoyable report from the game at Grovehill Ballpark.
Among Joe Gray’s many roles in British Baseball is Project COBB and during the second game of the doubleheader Joe attached a small camera to the catcher’s mask of Croydon catcher, Matt Schwartz. Below you will find a link to that video which is a rare opportunity to see baseball from that angle. It has been a long time since we have seen “Mask Cam” on ESPN or Fox. The ending of the video below illustrates the potential risk involved so perhaps damage to equipment is the reason for this.
