During Tuesday night’s MLB game between the Atlanta Braves and the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida, the television crew at FOX Sports SUN captured a gorgeous replay of a “strike ’em out, throw ’em out” double play that would make anyone who sports in sports video production smile.

The centerfield camera operator who captured that shot was Trina Cassese. The veteran camera op has worked Rays games for many years. The replay operator was George Demko. Working video was Jeanine Kranick. The front bench for Tampa Bay Rays Baseball on FOX Sports SUN is producer Kevin Patterson, director Gary Nicholas, and technical director Jack Kramer.
The shot and replay has also garnered a wealth of praise and admiration on social media over the past couple of days:
As someone who’s shot a lot of baseball, this camera work is ridiculous. https://t.co/8i5woRlGXe

Lot of love being given to the cam op, and it is no doubt due. But don’t sleep on the replay op with the perfect ramp and slow down https://t.co/nzYcCY5j1t

We’re less than a week into the start of a severely-delayed Major League Baseball season that left many in sports video production without work for many months. However, it’s clear that the crew at FOX Sports SUN hasn’t skipped a beat and is in midseason form.
