1 During Saturday’s Dodgers-Giants regional broadcast of Fox, the net showed the first pitch thrown by Nascar driver Kurt Bush.
However, Bush threw the first field before Thursday Game of giants. Amy Schneider, known for her memorable 40 wins Danger!dumped the first pitch on Saturday, which was Pride Day at Oracle Park.
People have suggested that Fox replaced Schneider’s first field with Bush’s first field because Schneider is transsexual.
Broadcasting giant Dwayne Cyprus drew attention to this story when he called on Fox to swap on the first pitch while calling on Sunday’s match.
“I want to make a correction of what I saw yesterday on the Fox show. The show hints that Kurt Bush dumped the first pitch yesterday, which is not true. Kurt Bush threw the first field on Thursday. It was Amy Schneider from Danger! glory that threw the first pitch on Pride Day yesterday. I just wanted to make sure she got what she deserved. “
So, did Fox deliberately refuse to show Schneider’s first pitch? The network said no in a statement.
“On Saturday, as part of the promotional package for the NASCAR race over the weekend in Northern California, we aired the first terrain of famous NASCAR pilot Kurt Bush. This promotion was in no way intended to overshadow the ceremonial first pitch of the match, as it is not routine for us to broadcast. ”
While it’s perfectly understandable not to give Fox the benefit of doubt, this seems to be a case of very careless production more than a bad plot.
Bush’s first field broadcast immediately went on to promote a race that Fox aired on Sunday.
Whether the blame lies with producer or playwright Adam Amin, it turns out that Fox is trying to trick people into thinking Bush dumped the first pitch on Saturday.
“Kurt Bush threw the first pitch,” Amin said. “Of course, tomorrow we have the NASCAR race from Sonoma. You will see this in the Fox networks, 2 east of FS1. ”
This is brutal. This is more than brutal. There is no way for any spectator to interpret this, except that Bush dropped the first pitch on Saturday. Whether Fox deliberately tried to trick people into thinking Bush dumped the field on Saturday, or whether it was just careless production, I don’t know.
But if I were in Amin’s place and read the promotion as it is written, I would be angry. And if I was a producer who intended the promotion to go differently, and then Amin to wing it, I would be angry. It was such an argument that could be avoided, but someone didn’t think hard enough to make it clear that the video was from Thursday, not Saturday, so now Fox had to deal with the reaction for several days.
However, Fox does not appear to have devised a plan to ignore Schneider. If the network wanted to do that, they could do it without broadcasting Busch’s first pitch. Networks, outside of the World Series and maybe some other playoff games, never show the first games unless they get terribly confused.

Although Fox may not have deliberately ignored Schneider, it’s hard to sympathize with them being beaten.
It was terrible optics for Fox to show Bush’s first pitch on the day Schneider dropped the first pitch. It was also insulting for the audience to present Bush’s first pitch as if it were from that day. Just a terrible execution everywhere.
