The profanity was picked up by NESN and MLB Network, which was using NESN's footage. MLB Network officials said they would not issue a comment on a "spontaneous live moment" from NESN's feed. NESN officials have yet to respond to an email inquiry. Ortiz' profanity also was heard on FS Kansas City's telecast, for which announcer Steve Physioc apologized. FSN VP/Communications Chris Bellitti: "Our coverage was live, and obviously no one was expecting profanity in that situation. Our announcers handled it well and apologized to the audience." ESPN viewers did not hear the profanity, as the network picked up the pre-game ceremony. ESPN VP/Communications Mike Soltys: "When we take another network's feed, we delay it. Our 'SportsCenter' control room turned off the sound for the expletive" (THE DAILY).
