Play by play broadcasters know it's all about the eyes.
Radio voices know their primary duty is to paint the word picture and let the listener "see" the game. Let your words give them vision. Radio sportscasters give vision by painting that word picture in the mind's eye of the listener.
A broadcast colleague once told me of the blind season-ticket holder, who would sit aside him and "watch" the game. He saw and felt the action through the broadcaster's words. Descriptive terminology. Precise court geography. An active vocabulary. These all played their part in the blind fan being able to see the game.
I always kept this fan in my mind when calling a game. He made me a much more detailed and accurate sportscaster.
Do you think he can help you too?
