Week in review

In the Both Sides Of The Ball video published this week, SportsCenter anchors Jay Harris and Mike Hill‘s claims of being two-sport athletes are met with skepticism by two-sport legend Bo Jackson.

The guys were unwilling to relent, leading to challenges of epic proportions.

Let’s review the Week On Front Row:

* ESPN feature producer Chris Bloxom traces the story of a Louisville Slugger’s beginnings as an ash tree in a Pennsylvania forest. We previewed the story earlier in the week and ran the full piece yesterday. Both received a lot of attention.

* In the Front & Center podcast, ESPN the Magazine senior writer and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Don Van Natta discusses his reporting of the Penn State child sex abuse case story, which evolved into a story that resulted in the firings of football coach Joe Paterno and the university’s president.

* On Wednesday, ESPN introduced the first-ever Spanish-language spot in the iconic This is SportsCenter franchise. New York Yankees second baseman obinson Cano was the main character of the spot. Handshakes depicts how Cano’s ritual greetings have consequences.

* Take a look into Front Row’s “photo booth” capturing some fun moments of the Women’s Final Four teams during their time in front of the camera. Learn what inspired this unique idea, which aired during our coverage.
