Must-Click Link: The tragedy of playing for the Baltimore Orioles

8 Comments

Ever see those anti-drug posters where they show a meth-head’s downward spiral in the form of increasingly depressing mugshots?  Yeah, those are pretty sobering! Well, there is a baseball equivalent.

Remember kids: don’t play for the Baltimore Orioles. Not even once.

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.
