I noticed, during the cheering, spraying of champagne and related shenigans, that Archie Bradley was wearing some kind of chest harness. Initially, I wondered if he was perhaps announcing his coming out as part of the BDSM community, but Mrs. SnakePit speculated that it appeared to be a GoPro rig. As usual, she was right, and the footage from the camera was just released by the Diamondbacks.

It’s pretty sweet, though if (like Mrs. SnakePit!), you’re sensitive to motion sickness, it’s probably not recommended. Let’s just say, a post-baseball career as a SteadiCam operator does not appear to beckon for Mr. Bradley. :) But it’s still probably the closest any of us are ever going to get to being right there, in the room, for such a celebration. At seven minutes long, I wonder what the team had to cut out in order to make it fit for release? I’m sure GoPro are also glad the camera was removed before Bradley plunged into the pool!
