Tweaks to PBP

One of the areas of the game that has come a long way over the years is the play by play. Not so much the presentation (although there have been cosmetic changes for the better) but the amount of expressions and banter it has now. It's great. Please keep expanding that I love it! Big thank you to Pstrickert for his work there!

I have two suggestions, one small, one a little larger. First, it would add to the immersion if the play by play guy could announce the attendance in the 7th inning like they do in real life.

The second is a little bigger. Why not make the play by play announcer a hirable position for the GM? He could appear as a member of the team staff, like a coach or trainer. Nowhere else. I am not suggesting modifying the play by play text in any way other than to lead off the broadcast with "This is Vin Scully coming to you from Dodger Stadium" for example. Name and Place variables already exist. One area the play by play guy can impact would be the team's Fan Interest. If hiring a popular or reputable Play by Play boradcaster gives the team a small to moderate boost in Fan Interest it would be worth the expense to do so. In real life the local radio & TV broadcast crews are team employees to I think it makes sense to add it to OOTP.

Trust me, as a Marlins fan listening to Dave Van Horne on the radio has been one of the bright spots in a few dismal seasons.

Would be good if the PBP would include the names of the managers.

I don't think it was added in OOTP19, but I'm not sure... haven't played out a game yet in OOTP19... but I will very soon.
