I watched about 10 minutes of the Derby and turned it off.

That presentation was absolutely awful. That camera, facing the batter from the front in a limited view, was like watching batting practice; absolutely terrible, even the announcers could not keep track of home run count.

The format is also totally reliant on if the "pitcher" and batter are in sync and getting balls in the right spot.

Give each batter, 20 balls, from a pitching machine, all at the same speed, right down the middle... and the product would be worlds better.

Blows my mind how much money goes into this stuff and they still put out such a garbage product.
