SEEN & HEARD IN VIERA

Let’s hope the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network has the best promos and commercials in Major League Baseball, because the network definitely has worked hard on them.

MASN’s production crew has been going sun up to sundown filming spots with various Nats and actors. MASN’s intricate production can tie players up with filming for over an hour.

The Nats should get the good-guy award for being so patient.

Apparently, it’s no longer all here in Viera. Yesterday, Space Coast Stadium employees removed signs that read “It’s all here in Viera” from the stadium’s outfield fence.
