The BCHL has decided to delay the start of the hockey season until December 1st. Teams, including the Wenatchee Wild, will have the option of holding an extended training camp from September to November. Littler says it was the smart thing to do…

Littler says the Wild will begin its camp in Wenatchee hopefully around mid-September. He also said the team will be announcing soon decisions on coaching. You’ll remember that Bliss stepped down from bench-coaching the Wild mid-season last year for health reasons. Chris Clark has been the interim head coach since.

Video game sound effects will accompany Major League Baseball games

You may be able to hear crowd noise and music from highlights coming out of T-Mobile Park…

Those who play video games might recognize it. It’s from the officially licensed game called “MLB The Show.”

Taking a cue from two European soccer leagues, Major League Baseball will play crowd noise from its official video game through ballpark sound systems during games. Stadium sound engineers will have access to around 75 different effects and reactions, according to MLB.

San Diego Studios, a branch of Sony Interactive Entertainment, compiled the noise during games over several seasons.

Baseball is hoping the crowd noises, along with stadium announcers, walk-up music and in-stadium video, will replicate the in-game experience as closely as possible without real fans in the stadium. Some ballparks are also offering fans the chance to buy photo cutouts which will be placed in the stands.
