The ESPN Bus Tour made its last stop in Peoria, Arizona to visit the Seattle Mariners. While the bus was not greeted by pristine desert conditions, this hardly deterred the crew as they braved the torrential dounpour and were ready to set up at 5:00 am. The desk, lights and cameras were dry and ready for live shots throughout the morning, along with pre-taped segments and tape feeds. Sat West’s satellite truck was on hand to uplink the live feed and facilitate the tape feeds to ESPN’s headquarters in Connecticut. The most anticipated interview of the day was with Robinson Cano, who made the leap from the New York Yankees to Seattle in the biggest move of the offseason.
