Boog Sciambi, beloved baseball broadcaster, recently signed on to call Cubs games on Marquee Sports Network. It's a big move to one of the game's biggest markets, covering a franchise known around the globe. Although excited, Sciambi might also be a little nervous.

So, over the weekend, he decided to get some prep work in for the upcoming season. He stopped by a local pickup baseball game in Central Park and gave it a go. It was amazing.

He even got to experience how the wind might affect fly balls -- something that's a constant issue at Wrigley Field. He seems ready for primetime.

Oh, and also, if you're playing pickup softball or baseball in a park, remember that there might be an MLB broadcaster watching and broadcasting your every move. Try not to mess up.
