Sport Tiffany Park Showed Up on ESPN, Absolutely Crushed It
Giants will display cardboard cutouts of their fans at Oracle Park this season
The Giants sent a letter to their season-ticket holders on Thursday explaining that their games at Oracle Park will be played out fans. The franchise then asked the season ticket holders to send in images of themselves that will be placed on cardboard cutouts in front of their usual seats in the stands. The bullpens are being relocated at Oracle Park.
The daily routine of rising and firing up some KBO has become quite comfortable and ESPN has done solid work putting together compelling broadcasts half a world away focusing on a league most people knew nothing about only months ago. Part of the proven calculus has been to stack guests upon each other to discuss baseball and baseball-adjacent things. One could argue that a more conversational and collaborative approach would work for the network's Sunday night broadcast, but that's a topic for a follow-up post when the content well really dries up.
Of all the personalities who have passed through the camera lens, few have been as engaging and provided as much added value as Sin Young (Tiffany) Park, who hopped on this morning to provide a unique voice.
Pablo Torre Replaces Mina Kimes as 'ESPN Daily Podcast' Host
ESPN commentator Pablo Torre will replace Mina Kimes as the full-time host of the "ESPN Daily Podcast," the sports network announced Tuesday. Original "ESPN Daily Podcast" host Kimes will join ESPN's NFL Liveteam division as an analyst, and will also get her own show — "The Mina Kimes Show featuring Lenny" football analysis podcast. ESPN said Kimes will also continue to be a contributor to the "ESPN Daily" podcast as a guest. In addition to now hosting "ESPN Daily" in audio form, Torre will continue to appear on ESPN's weekday afternoon studio shows, including "Around the Horn" and "Highly Questionable.
Park,who has 15,000 subscribers on YouTube and fewer than 700 followers on Twitter, could be a diamond in the rough for a future expanded role. Or, at the very least, a standing invitation to come back for KBO coverage any time she wants.
Seoul tour with— Daniel Kim 대니얼 김 (@DanielKimW) on w/ and
Waiting for next up!— Sin Young (Tiffany) Park (@sinyoungtv) love !!❤️ I'm having so much fun!
This morning, she took viewers on a guided, live tour of Seoul, pointing out buildings of importance, hitting up the Gwangjang Market and dipping into a tea house for the final live shot of the game. It was really, really good. Not the type of thing that ESPN could do every day, but something to build on.
Report: UFC in negotiations for Usman vs. Masvidal at UFC 251
The UFC is negotiating to book Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal as the new main event at UFC 251 on July 11, according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani. Glibert Burns was slated to face Usman, the welterweight champion, in a title fight in the main event, but he was forced from the card Friday after testing positive for COVID-19. Masvidal's manager said earlier Saturday that the 35-year-old is "absolutely willing" to accept the Usman fight on just one week's notice. The Florida native was in negotiations with the UFC to challenge Usman for the welterweight belt, but the two sides were far apart, and the fight was offered to Burns.
Now, again, this is an extremely early call. Perhaps it's jumping the shark. But watching Park has to spark some ideas in incorporating her further. One can imagine she'd be a tremendous asset once fans and reporters are allowed back into Korean ballparks. She seems perfectly suited to do player features and interviews. Or travel pieces. Or food-based hits. Anything, really.
She signed off by saying she loves ESPN. The feeling may be mutual, whether or not the suits know it yet. Maybe nothing comes off one of the more impressive network debuts in years. That would be a wasted opportunity.
