    It's Retro Night at Citizens Bank Park for the Phillies tonight with the Phillies and Padres wearing throwback unis and CSN got in on the act with matching graphics (with the exception of the scoreboard)

    CSN Chicago does the same thing with throwback Cubs games, too.

    A change for this year's MLB on TBS: the scorebox is now a standard rectangular box and the pitch tracker is connected to it at the top left of the screen...

    ...although the tracker disappears when the camera changes from behind the pitcher's mound.

    Batter information is still at the top of the screen.

    That reminds me of MLB Network's scorebug.

    That bug looks so tiny. It's real hard to read if you have bad eyesight.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the AT&T Sportsnet bar...

    They should have placed the pitch count bar on the bottom.

    Honestly, if you covered up the logo there and asked which network it was, I'd be like, "omg, SNY got new graphics!" Seriously, the visual style seems like something SNY would do.

    To me, these new AT&T SN gfx look like a combination of FOX's current look, sprinkled in with the previous look (the pillbox era).

    We probably won't see until next baseball season, but i'm curious to see how the new FOX Sports graphics turn out for MLB.

    As the playoffs near their end, someone made a montage of most of the (often-forgotten) shows that Joe Buck has been forced to plug during the World Series.

    FOX has added the number in the batting order to the left of the batter's name in their graphics

    Forgot to mention, the world feed on both the All-Star Game and now the World Series has been using the updated MLB Network scoreboard. Sportsnet tended to go back and forth between that and Fox feeds over the years (Canadian television providers usually carry Fox to begin with), but they went back last year when their Blue Jays play-by-play man Buck Martinez started doing color with Matt Vasgersian for it. (so basically, it's one Buck, or another)

    It still looks much more professional than how they used to do the world feeds (that scoreboard was quite gaudy), though I miss when Gary Thorne did the play-by-play, he was much more majestic for the World Series than Joe Buck.

    It is great hearing Vasgerian and Buck Martinez doing games.

    I recall an article that stated that Rogers negotiated Bucks involvement in the international feed starting in 2016.

    Shame it wasn't the Blue Jays he was calling.

    So Fox is actually chroma keying the outfield walls to add additional ads to it.

    TBS did it, too. It was funny, though, that they had to put it on a dark green part of the batter's eye in Chicago, since they couldn't key it over Wrigley's ivy.

    Please don't give Fox ideas if they ever have to do postseason games in Miami.
