Although director Rich DiPirro based his directing pattern and design for “Deal or No Deal” on football games, the comparison to sports coverage was not lost on an executive at Fox Sports supervising coverage of baseball.  

In advance of the 2007 season, DiPirro was invited to discuss his melding of game and sports at an annual meeting of Fox’s roaster of MLB directors.  As part of that presentation, this video was created to show how emotion and energy is as important as game-play when telling a compelling story to viewers through direction and how, in this case of life imitating art, the cutting pattern on “Deal” could be infused back onto coverage of Baseball.
