No TV in the Tap Room? 

I believe he has two, but my understanding is it will be outdoor seating only because of the current restrictions.  I am guessing I will be able to convince him to let me turn it on and check it out casually.

There you go! Just take your beer inside to watch the innings Ohtani pitches!
