Re: Camera Angles
I prefer the straight angle from dead center too. I think the problem could be the batter's eye areas in centerfield in most ballparks that don't have any places to put a cameraman and his gear. Plus, in order to get the straight-on view you have to get high enough that the view of the play is not blocked by the pitcher. With our normal off-center view it makes it hard to judge whether pitches are inside or outside or over the plate. If you take the straight-on but higher camera angle it might make it hard to see whether a pitch is too high or too low.
