What Ebbet's Field could have been. My mother and uncle were diehard Brooklyn Dodger fans who lived within walking distance of the ballpark in the '50s. Seeing this video overlapping Ebbet's  Field instead would have taken them to Nirvana.

While my uncle eventually made peace and joined me with the Mets, my mother cursed O'Malley until her dying day.

Is this the same team that ran the shot of the Cowboys facility for Hard Knocks?

I don't see any editing. How is it possible to control a drone from so far away? It goes a long way from the starting point. Gotta be some trick to the video, right?

Lest we forget there's an Oscar for Film Editing.

Looked like there was a little bit of splicing with their speed cuts like around the 2:52 mark when it enters the offices.

As a Cubs fan, I approve.

damageddude: my mother cursed O'Malley until her dying day.


My grandfather was a top prospect for the Abilene Blue Sox in the mid 50s.  There was no "AAA", "AA", "A" system then.  the pro teams just had various farm teams and Abilene was a BROOKLYN Dodger affiliate.  he had signed letters from Branch Rickey:  "we hear you're doing great things out there, keep it up!"

the family folklore is that when O'Malley moved the team to LA, he sold a bunch of farm teams, Abilene being one, and he got lost in the shuffle and never got his shot (the Blue Sox were then bought by I think Kansas City, the Philly Athletics, I'd have to look).

point being yeah, i have a very distant connection to the Brooklyn Dodgers.  And we were raised as Dodger fans, but once AZ got a team, I became a Snakes fan (to my great disappointement, outside of 2001).

and to fully close the loop, I saw Dead And Company in June, at Dodger Stadium.  It was surreal to be standing in center field (not on the grass, they had this plastic surface so the 5K people on the filed wouldn't harm it.  The stage configuration was mid left to mid right, facing home plate.  they have the basepaths fenced off and security every 5-6 feet, so no knucklehead would try to jump the fence nad run the bases.  Very cool experience! (Even the show was kinda mleh.)

That was cool.

Spliced and edited a bit, but still way better then my drone flying skills.

It's always fun explaining to folks how I, ostensibly from the Baltimore metropolitan region, landed on the Mets as my baseball team.

There was defiantly editing in that.  That does not take away at all from the excellent presentation though.  You can tell from the stands having different amounts of fans throughout the video.  The drone pilot was in range of various runs spliced together from around the stadium.  Probably using a headset something like this...

So he doesn't ninja blender any innocent bystanders.  Plus some of those sequences were obviously choreographed like people conveniently walking out of a door that the drone swoops into.

Admittedly I am a Cubs fan for 30+ years now, but there is nothing like the history and presence of old ballparks. I really need to get back there and see a couple more games in person.

Would've been nice if it flew around the bases.

Still very cool tho

FarkingChas:

The most impressive part was going from no people in the stands and the grounds crew still working to a almost full stadium and players warming up in a minute.

And to get there with no major foot traffic issues as well.... Chefs kiss

Definitely staged - there weren't enough 50+ lbs overweight absolutely shiatfaced drunk blondes with cigs hanging out of their mouths and equally ape-like men in open jerseys pawing on them.

There's definitely editing, but it's hidden well.

They use small and highly maneuverable drones with FPV headsets for navigation. These really took after this one went viral a few years ago:

Right Up Our Alley

Wouldn't be surprised if the same team was involved.

Some of the moves seemed superfluous. That's my only critique.

Yeah, saw my first game at Fenway a month ago. It was pretty great. Saw a game at Wrigley when I was pretty young so hoping to get back at some point.

Unfortunately they're a dying breed. Coors field is currently the 3rd oldest NL ballpark.

Note how the stands go from empty to full between the tour of the offices. The trajectory is letter perfect, but there has to be a time jump.

Granted not sports related, but this is my favorite true single clip that also has some very sneaky time jumps in it that you don't notice.  https://youtu.be/U8Amun7SpJ8

Yeah, it's hard to put into words. But sitting in that stadium it just feels like that's how you're meant to watch baseball.

My 10 year old really got into baseball over the past couple of years. Oddly, I think it was because of Covid, because it was the first activity he was able to do with friends after all the lockdowns in spring of 2020 (they pushed back the season to summer).  Last year he said he wanted to see a game at every stadium.

So after explaining that was more of a lifetime goal and not a single season one, one of his Christmas gifts last year was a list of 10 stadiums where he could pick two for this year. Boston was one of his choices.

Oddly enough we've been able to make a good dent in the stadium tour already due to some other travelling. This is where we stand: (first two were accomplished couple of years ago)

Phillies (we're from Philly)
Diamondbacks
Orioles
Angels
Padres
Red Sox
Yankees

I've personally been to a few more, but I'm only gonna count them if we go together.

The AL East is a -brutal- division (as evidenced by providing half of the AL playoff field).
