“We are always looking for ways to augment the viewing experience for fans watching MLB telecasts,” said Chris Tully, MLB’s Senior Vice President of Broadcasting.  “The State Farm Home Run Derby is a unique event for a 3D telecast since it has all of the prestige of an MLB Jewel Event and the event’s format allows for more creativity in how it is shot for television.”
