Link doesn't work, and once you find the article, you run into this sentence -

Not so the replay, but then the spring training systems run out of trucks was for practice—or entertainment—purposes only.


.. which I read twice, still don't get, and it kept going downhill from there. Yikes.

i.e. the spring training replay gear was set up in trucks (i.e. temporary set-up). With fixed equipment and cameras, the system should work more smoothly when implemented for real, not practice. Missing apostrophe in "system's" though.

I'm beginning to think Sluggerrr's tweets make more sense than Gammons' sentences.

That sentence makes perfect sense (depending on the context, of course), except that "was" should be "were."
