For those who like baseball and especially like the Padres: A new TV show debuted on Channel 4 San Diego last night called "The Road to the Show". It was on last night following the Padres blowout of the White Sox in Spring Training. It was an hour-long and was nothing I've seen before. My family and I loved it. I'll give you the reasons why for me. The show is all about the path to the major leagues for some players in the Padre organization. The main player followed, who is now in big league ST camp with the Padres, Drew Macias, was the narrator, insider, and videographer for the show. Alot of the show was Drew, holding a video camera, wandering in and out of places that minor leaguers would go, not the public. This included clubhouses, their apartments, busses they used to travel in, and ballparks in towns in the minor leagues (Lake Elsinore was shown briefly). He sometimes would let the video speak for itself. Other times, he asked his teammates and coaches questions, while videotaping them. There were also other interviews,with players and coaches with an off-camera person asking the questions. Alot of the answers and video were very candid, things I've never seen or heard before. It gave much insight to the path some minor leaguers take to get to the Big Show. One pitcher they followed, ending up having Tommy John surgery. They showed him waiting pre-op, going to sleep and even showed some of the surgery itself. Very interesting stuff. I e-mailed Channel 4 earlier and told them how much I liked it and asked them to make more episodes. It's on again tonight at 6pmPST. The game follows, against the Rangers, at 7pm. Channel 4 is also broadcasting both ST games, vs. the Dodgers, from Bejing this week.
