Sad that this forum has just become a avenue for so many to express their hate of anything and everything. Apple is give you something for free. The video of these games is excellent. What are so many complaining about. If you don't want to watch, then don't and move on. This forum has simply become an absolute waste of time. If I want to read about hate, I can just watch politics.

The production and camerawork of these games is top-notch. But the podcaster/announcers Apple is using is a swing and a miss.

I’ve gone from being not interested in Baseball to being somewhat interested thanks to Apple TV’s broadcast.

There’s something kinda chill about having it on and periodically hearing the “crack” of the bat on the ball while I do other things.

That's impressive. Since a baseball has no fingers - are you using Siri to respond on this forum? ?

The person who went on the diatribe about baseball crapped on the fitness plus badges a few days ago also.

I find the Apple TV+ broadcasts refreshing for Friday Night MLB. The announcers are not your standard POV, but they add some different perspectives to the game that I find unique. Full disclosure, I am a huge baseball fan and tune into all teams, not just my Phillies. If you aren't currently a fan this probably will only get you to casually watching, not make you a diehard.
