Streaming Flyers

Greetings readers,

I will be broadcasting three Dayton Flyers games this weekend! Today I have the call of a softball doubleheader against Saint Bonaventure, starting at 12:00 EST. It’s Senior Day for the Flyers, as they currently sit in 7th place in the Atlantic 10 Conference and look to squeeze in for a playoff spot. The Bonnies look to play spoiler today at UD Softball Stadium.

Tomorrow (May 5th, 2013), I will broadcast the Senior Day game for the Flyers baseball team, as they host George Washington. The Flyers are looking to split the series today, and possibly take the three-game set with the Colonials. I will have the call for my first Flyers baseball game without the other team being Wright State Sunday at 12:00.

The Flying Voice

Greetings readers,

Wow, how one month flies. Sorry for the silence once again, but it’s been a good month for sports. I’ve called two playoff series, a conference championship, and a couple of arena football games. There’s also a new job for me this Spring.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. I am a Public Address Announcer for the Dayton Flyers baseball team.

Now why on earth would I think this would be interesting to talk about? There’s a few reasons.

1) I like talking about new opportunities for myself. That sounds so much like a vague statement, but I feel blessed for everything new chance to prove myself.

2) I often think how cool it is for a graduate of a rival college to have this job. Does it mean anything? No, not really. It doesn’t matter where you graduated from if you work your hardest. I just get a kick out of it (and so do some of the Flyer staff, even having one telling me that I’m on waivers.)

3) This is a great job to have. It’s a great, laid-back environment, and I feel accepted into the group. I get to work with great people each game. I also have talked with a few Flyer fans at the baseball games, and they have compliment me on my work.

In case you’re not familiar with the Dayton Flyers, they are a NCAA Division I school that call the Atlantic 10 their conference. This is the same conference where Virginia Commonwealth and Butler jumped to last year, and the same where Butler and Xavier are departing for the new Big East. (In case you didn’t hear, George Mason is coming to the A10 now.)

The Flyers call Time Warner Cable Stadium their home, right at the corner of Interstate 75 and Edwin C. Moses Boulevard. It’s a nice stadium, with a good size press box and also a luxury suite next door. The seating is concentrated behind home plate, between the dugouts. There is a nice grass patch between the home dugout and the indoor batting cages.

As of March 26th, I have done nine games so far.

I am incredibly blessed to have this job and grateful for the connection that I have for this job. One thing I didn’t mention is how I got the job. One of my friends that I work with at the Dragons, Scott, also works at UD. He heard that the Flyers needed a PA Announcer, and the rest was history.

I’m incredibly lucky to have this job. I wanted to share with the world (again) about my new job. What will this lead to? Only time will tell.

Until next time,
