Last night Jimmy Rollins gave Philly fans some instructions for Games 6 and 7:

“Be out there. Let ’em have it. Let. Them. Have. It. All of ’em. For real.”

Here’s the audio.

Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
