FOX Sports SUN Crew Captured a Gorgeous Replay of a Caught Stealing During Tuesday Night’s Rays-Braves Telecast

Camera operator Trina Cassese, replay op George Demko garner praise for their work

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:

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.
