Network hits a home run for the blind

While I was at the game on Saturday, it appears baseball was making history on the TV.  Accessible Media Inc was covering the Blue Jays, Orioles game in a new way to help the blind.  As many of us Oriole fans have heard night after night Hunter, Palmer, Bordick, and Thorne broadcast games in their tell all style.  It may never have occurred to us that they really weren’t being as descriptive as they could be.  That is because we have the advantage of sight.  When we miss a play more than likely they will show the play over and over again.  But what if you could not see the play to begin with.  You would have to rely on your family to describe was a high strike is a ball inside.  That is where the AMI comes in.  Instead of making the blind rely on the radio announcers to give more colorful play by play a solution to this problem is to add in a contaminator that will work with the current broadcasters to add in what they missed.

Trip Advisor Review Camden Yards

This is a post I recently wrote in http://www.tripadvisor.com about Camden Yards in Baltimore.  Home of the Orioles.  The first thing you notice is the Warehouse.  This is the icon of Camden Yards.  I have discussed with many baseball fans the attraction of Camden Yards and the first thing everybody says is the Warehouse is was the striking force that draws your attention as you walk toward the stadium.  The second thing they say is the beauty of the ballpark.   The other great thing is the light rail that sits in front of the Warehouse.  Getting to the ballpark is very easy.  Even if you drive Camden yards the stadium is to your left right off of 95 coming off of exit 52.  I usually park at the Sheraton when I drive.  Mainly because of the ease of getting right on 95 after the game. The  cost of parking is $20 event parking and is collected when you drive in.
