With the All-Star Game now in the books, we can officially turn our attention to the second half of the 2022 MLB season.
But we can still look back on some of the great sights and sounds from last night’s ballgame.
The All-Star Game is always a nice celebration of the best of the best in the American League and the National League.
The best from each side come together and play in a ceremonious game that the entire baseball world enjoys.
But there was one thing that happened last night that was rather interesting.
While New York Yankees pitcher Nestor Cortes was out on the mound, he and his catcher Jose Trevino were mic’d up and were able to actually talk out their plan for what their next pitch was going to be.
Codify tweeted a video of the moment where Cortes and Trevino literally talked to each other during an at-bat.
Yes, the pitcher and the catcher are talking to each other to strategize how they attack the hitters and I can't believe how much I love this.pic.twitter.com/wUTdk2mrgN

This could end up being a very affective feature that gets added to MLB broadcasts.
Anytime both the pitcher and the catcher are mic’d up and can literally talk out their plan and decide what the next pitch is going to be, without having to worry about exchanging signs, that’s a step in the right direction.
It makes things a lot more convenient for both the pitcher and the catcher and could help speed up the game.
That way, pitchers don’t have to take that long look in at the catcher’s signs.
Of course, you wouldn’t want the batter to also be mic’d up and hear what the plan is, but as long as that didn’t happen, this could turn out to be a nice step forward for baseball.
