(AP/FOX 11) - Fox explains in a statement why its video feed failed, causing a 7-minute delay during Game 1 of the World Series:
"Before the start of the bottom of the fourth inning of tonight's World Series Game 1, a rare electronics failure caused both the primary and backup generators inside the FOX Sports production compound to lose power. The issue was immediately addressed, although it resulted in the audience missing one at-bat during the time needed to switch to carriage of Major League Baseball's international feed, powered by a different generator on site.
The on-field delay was due to replay capability being lost in both team's clubhouses. We apologize for the interruption in tonight's coverage and are working to ensure that the remainder of the World Series is broadcast without incident."
