INSIDE CHINA BASIN: CBS Sports Director Bob Fishman On His Career, Vin Scully & Sandy Koufax

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast 

Updated once a week and celebrating its 11th season on TheSportsVirus.com!

CBS Sports Director Bob Fishman, who is a Sports Broadcasting Hall of Famer, joins Inside China Basin to talk about his illustrious career which includes directing 2 World Series. His resume is highlighted by 37 NCAA Final Fours, 27 US Open tennis championships, 20 Daytona 500s, 3 Olympic Winter Games and numerous NFL, NBA playoffs and college football games. A diehard Dodgers fan, Bob tells great stories about his time in network television including opportunities to develop friendships with childhood idols Sandy Koufax and Vin Scully.

Fishman on why baseball is the hardest sport to direct: 

“Every other major sport is played left to right or right to left. So, basically you are on one  camera to document the play…Baseball is the only sport where you are making internal camera cuts in the middle of the play…You may have five or six cuts within a single play. ”

INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Big Time Stats Guys Ethan Cooperson (CBS) and Ed Sfida (FOX)

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated once a week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Today we step away from Giants baseball talk and focus on a behind-the- scenes aspect of sports broadcasting – Statistics.  Ed Sfida serves as the statistician for Joe Buck on FOX NFL games while Ethan Cooperson is Jim Nantz’s personal stats man on the NFL on CBS. They tell stories about how they became two of the best in the business and what it takes to be a “Big Time Stats Guy.” Since they are both Philadelphia natives, Ed and Ethan both have opinions about former Phillies manager turned Giants manager Gabe Kapler.

We also have a special tribute to another stats legend, Chuck Gardner,  our good friend who passed away on Sunday. 

Listen To Ed Sfida and Ethan Cooperson

Next week we will get back to talking Giants baseball with NBC Sports Bay Area Analyst and former Giants pitcher Shawn Estes! Plus we will discuss the book The Baseball Codes with co-author Michael Duca.
