First off, I love O's Xtra. I think it's very well done, and I love having it done from the ballpark during home games. I'm not sure this is possible, but maybe they could either choose a specific place or rotate around and do the show from different area bars while the team is on the road? As a broadcast major I understand that the cost of doing a live remote isn't exactly nominal, however it would be a cool feature for fans to be able to see the show done live. It wouldn't even have to be every game or series...perhaps just a few series a year, once or twice a week, or something like that.
If you're taking suggestions for on-air features, again this would be something that would in effect be while the team is on the road. Perhaps they could do a ballpark tour of some sort for each ballpark the Orioles visit. Obviously it wouldn't be a nightly feature, and some stadiums (ie-Fenway) would only need to be shown once, however it would give fans an idea of what other parks are like.
Thanks for your input. Just now saw this post. Unfortunately, we don't have that kind of input, obviously as other posters have asked, nor should we. That's not why we're there. We're focused solely on providing Oriole fans with a creative, entertaining show about the team before and after each game.
We've got a lot of fresh new ideas, and certainly appreciate your input. Your second idea would be something that could be feasible, but we'd have to see logistically how it would work out.
Your first idea though pretty much happened at the stadium with our set out in the bullpen picnic area. Of course, as everyone may know, the Orioles are putting the statues of Oriole legends out there, which I think will be a great addition.
