Anyone who played baseball can probably recall hearing that piece of advice from a parent or Little League coach.
A similar piece of advice can be offered to aspiring play by play broadcasters as well.
"Keep your focus on the game!"A listener or viewer tunes in for one thing - and one thing only.
Minimize your discussion about other sports or other games. Your listener has plenty of places to keep up with those things in seconds.
Check your politics at the door. Sports are the toy department of life, and your viewers may be tuning in specifically to escape the drumbeat of negativity.
You owe it to your listeners and viewers to give them what they came for. The game.
Keep your focus where it belongs.
