NESN’s Tom Caron on His New Sports Obsession
Ok, so, it's baseball. HOWEVER, it's a professional baseball league that is completely quarantined and you will not believe what they do to try to substitute for the total lack of fans.
Taiwanese Baseball League, it's a professional baseball league. Empty stadiums, nobody else allowed in the ballpark and they play in a dome.
My favorite thing out of it all, they put mannequins and robots in some of the seats so it didn't look empty. Some of them were sanding and holding pennants, other were sitting down.
A guy hit a home run and they cranked the crowd noise from the speakers, the 'crowd' went wild after. - Tom Caron
