Peachtree TV: Get Ouside the Box

Peachtree TV is one of several networks that telecasts Atlanta Braves baseball games. The play-by-play, the commentary and the game itself are all presented to the viewer in an above average manner. However, the thing that gets me about Peachtree TV is the way that they handle the telecast between innings. Zilch, zero, nada. No commercials, no music, no cameras panning about bringing the viewer candid shots. Nothing. Silence. Now I'll be the first to admit that there are far too many stupid commercials out there that we have to suffer through. Thanks for sparing us that misery Peachtree. But otherwise, the silence is deafening. How about piping in the crowd noise between innings? Or a little ballpark organ music perhaps? Something besides utter and complete silence. And while we're at it, how about letting the cameras move around and give us some shots of the crowds, the ballpark, and/or the city? Does it have to remain in a single, fixed position the total time the teams are changing the field? Think outside the box for a change Peachtree TV. Give us some sights and sounds no other network can do because they're too busy making money showing commercials. Give us a reason to hang with you between innings. I'm getting up and down enough already.
