Great information. Thanks.

I can confirm the camera operators for Clemson were students (or at least very young individuals).

And the FSU-GT game was not even listed as a broadcast at all until 2-3 days before the game, so at least there was a broadcast of some type. There was what looked like a permanent, small camera behind home plate, so I'm guessing they just flipped a switch and that's all. I'm talking about 8 inches max - no way would you have thought it was for a broadcast.

Georgia Tech folks were really very nice, but I do think they were spread thin. Just from the stands, I heard both a baseball and tennis match going on Sunday.

More disappointing to me, Georgia Tech didn't allow ANY fans for VT-FSU including parents. The VT parents stood on the outside of the right filed foul line just to get a glimpse of their daughters playing. That is so wrong as the stadium was marked off for social distancing. And they allowed fans for the GT-Clemson game, which was played right after ours.
Okay, rant over.

Thank you VTSportscaster for the information. Good stuff.
