"This is not only a fun experience for our broadcasters, but it also gives our viewers a unique perspective on the game," said Dave Buck, Phillies Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising Sales.
"I think each of us is excited about the opportunity to call this baseball game from the stands," said McCarthy. "Last year's game was an amazing experience, one of the best I have ever had as a baseball broadcaster. The atmosphere, the energy, and the opportunity to catch a home run ball was unbelievable. This year, the field level perspective we will have will be filled with adrenaline."
