"Junior Announcers" to Take Over PawSox Play-By Play Duties Sundays in Fourth Inning
The Pawtucket Red Sox are inviting young fans, 9-18 years old, to be live on the air for an inning during Sunday PawSox home games on 920 WHJJ and the PawSox Radio Network, along with webcasts on MiLB.com.
“The PawSox Junior Announcers” will be youngsters from fourth grade through high school, who will join professional announcers Josh Maurer and Will Flemming in the booth in the top of the fourth and lead the play by play in the bottom of the fourth.
“The dream of being a baseball play-by-play announcer is so vivid for so many children—and adults,” said PawSox President Dr. Charles Steinberg. “For one inning on a Sunday afternoon, we can make that dream come true. We look forward to having a young ‘Fan in the Fourth’ on Sundays.”
Applicants can send essays and homemade audition clips to the club via pawsox.com. The children who are selected will be the PawSox’ guests at the game.
“Sundays are Family FunDays” also include fans running the bases after day games.
Each day of the week in 2016 has a theme, with full details at pawsox.com:
Earlier this week, the club announced the PawSox Lunch Box program, in which two children have lunch in the Owners Box on the afternoon of a night game, and then meet a PawSox player. The club also announced a “PawSox Poster Contest” in which elementary school students create baseball artwork that will be showcased at McCoy Stadium.
