Coronavirus

We could not begin this page without a quick mention of COVID-19, better known as Coronavirus. Safe to say this virus flipped everyone’s life upside down in a heartbeat. Some of us have contracted it. Others have lost loved ones. Many have lost jobs. There are those that struggle each day to survive as well as cope. Many carry the weight of their families on their shoulders. There are, certainly, families which have been devastated. Not one of us takes any level of pleasure in this pandemic. None of this has been easy on anyone.

That said, we have begun a special features department to focus on Public Address Announcers during this trying time. Quite a number of announcers went from too many gigs to none at all in an instant. With this section, we hope to post content which helps everyone cope as well as bring a bit of hope that all announcers will be back on the mic in the very near future.

For now, stay home, stay safe, stay healthy and, most importantly, take care of your families.

“The Lineups” is a video/audio series which gives people a chance to “virtually” hear the starting lineups of every World Series Game 1 from 1884 up into the fifties. This video gives the listener the unique opportunity to step back in time to hear what names such as Walter Johnson or Ty Cobb might have sounded in the stadium back in the day while providing unemployed Public Address Announcers the opportunity to announce classic baseball teams during the Coronavirus Crisis. 

Each video is dedicated to a different state, territory, country and organizations front line health care workers and first responders. We hope these might put a smile on a few faces in such difficult times. We thank them for putting their lives on the line for all of the rest of us.

All recordings were made in announcers’ homes during the pandemic.
