Maybe it will put a kabosh on broadcaster speculations that are almost always incorrect.

Not a bad idea. 

A better idea would be to employ former professional umpires (or, perhaps, collegiate umpires). Broadcasters wouldn't be speculating then.

Do you mean reading the article or providing microphones to crew chiefs?

Providing microphones. The only people who would understand the explanations is other umpires.

this was done in 1980-81 with Merle Harmon and Ron Luciano on NBC, but it is hard to find one of them, if any on you tube.

and of course with MLB being way behind the times, the japanese league has made the umpires announce decisions for a long time and i believe that one on CCS showed the umpire with a mic in that KBO post on CCS

yo, what was that HPU rig being used in the KBO game. think is was some type of Wilson.

why don't they just use the masks the catchers use if they are more protective (and if a backwards wearing helmet is used by catchers, then use a backwards wearing helmet) be darned the official umpires masks out there, unless you want a commercial of your brains on the official umpire rigs, versus the old frying pan for your brains on drugs.
