1. When it aired on Fox’s regional level in Saturday’s Dodgers-Giants game, the network showed the first pitch thrown by Nascar driver Kurt Busch.
However, Busch threw the first pitch Thursday Giants game. Amy Schneider, best known for her memorable 40-game winning streak Danger!he threw his first pitch on Saturday, which was Pride Day at Oracle Park.
People assumed that Fox replaced Schneider’s first pitch with Busch’s first pitch because Schneider was transgender.
Giant announcer Duane Kiper Giants focused on this story in exchange for the first pitch he called for Sunday’s game called Fox.
“I want to make a correction to what I saw on the Fox session yesterday. The broadcast involved Kurt Busch throwing his first pitch yesterday, which was not true. Kurt Busch threw the first pitch on Thursday. It belonged to Amy Schneider Danger! yesterday he threw his first pitch on fame on Pride Day. I just had to make sure he did. “
So did Fox deliberately refuse to show Schneider’s first workday? The network said no in a statement.
“On Saturday, as part of a promotional package for the NASCAR weekend race in Northern California, we gave the first recorded work of the famous NASCAR driver Kurt Busch. This climb did not in any way extinguish the first pitch of the game ceremony, as it is not usual for us to take off. ”
While it is entirely understandable not to give Foxi the benefit of the doubt, it seems to be the case for a very productive production rather than a vicious plot.
Busch’s first pitch broadcast was immediately included in a promotion for a race that Fox aired on Sunday.
Whether the blame lies with Adam Amin, a producer or a playwright, Fox found that he was trying to deceive the people that Bush had thrown the first pitch on Saturday.
“Kurt Busch threw the first pitch,” Amin said. “Of course, tomorrow we will have a NASCAR race from Sonoma. You can see that on Fox Networks, FS1 East 2 ”.
That is brutal. It is beyond Ankert. There’s no way the audience can interpret that, Busch threw the first pitch on Saturday. Fox deliberately tried to deceive people into thinking that Busch threw the pitch on Saturday or was it a reckless production, I don’t know.
But if I were Amin and read how the promotion was written, I would be obscene. And if I were a producer who wanted to go the promotion differently and then Amin flew south, I would be obscene. This was such an avoidable controversy, but someone didn’t think enough that the image in the video was on Thursday and not on Saturday, so now Fox has had to deal with a reaction for several days.
However, it does not appear that Fox devised a plan to applaud Schneider. If the network had wanted to do that, it could have done so without giving Busch the first pitch. The Nets, outside of the World Series and perhaps outside of other playoff games, never show their first pitches unless they come out very badly.
Although Fox did not deliberately ignore Schneider, it is difficult to sympathize with his frustration.
It was a great optic for Fox to show Busch’s first pitch on the day Schneider threw the first pitch. It was also offensive to the audience to present Busch’s first work as if it were that day. Just a scary execution around.

3. The New York Post Shaq reported feeling very generous while having dinner at a New York restaurant on Sunday night. Apparently, O’Neal received a check from each table while he was there and was also in charge of the servers. From the sixth page:
“We were told that the bill checks were” over $ 25,000. “O’Neal was also” very generous “with Jue Lan staff.” He left them the biggest tip they’ve ever received, “the source said.
4. The Joc-Pederson-Tom Pham fantasy football kerfuffle continues. The Giants players showed their support for Pederson on Tuesday by wearing T-shirts that said “Stashing Players on The IR isn’t Cheating.” This caught Pham’s attention because he was not having fun.
