New York – September 26, 2012 – With the Oakland A’s and the Chicago White Sox both chasing Postseason berths, Caught Looking (Thursday, Sept. 27th at 9 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network) will feature a behind-the-scenes look at the recent series pitting the A’s against the New York Yankees, and the White Sox against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Major League Baseball Productions embedded camera crews with both the A’s and the White Sox throughout each of their individual series, providing a unique perspective on the action between the lines. MLB Productions cameras captured the White Sox as they fight for the AL Central crown, and the A’s as they tried to make up ground in the AL West while holding on to one of the two Wild Cards.
The episode features compelling in-game audio from A’s pitcher Brett Anderson and White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy. Off the field, camera crews followed A’s pitcher Travis Blackley as he took in the New York City sights for the first time, and pitcher A.J. Griffin, as he visited the MLB Fan Cave. In addition, this week’s episode also includes a profile of White Sox manager Robin Ventura, an interview with White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams, and features on outfielder Alex Rios and first baseman Adam Dunn.
Caught Looking, a new collaboration between Major League Baseball Productions and NBC Sports Group, will follow two different teams each week, as the final eight weeks of the season unfolds. Each original episode will be one hour in length and will air on NBC Sports Network.
On November 8, NBC Sports Network will air a special postseason episode of Caught Looking which will feature the two teams playing in the 2012 World Series.
