Some Things Just Don’t Change…

Twenty-five years ago, when Hickory’s minor league team came to town, I was hoping to become the public address announcer.  I had done so for the local recreation department since I was sixteen years old and figured I was right for the job.  Turns out I didn’t get that job, but was hired as a back-up for the regular announcer.

Tonight I feel like I have a role in the movie “Groundhog Day” as I return to the Crawdads’ stadium to shadow the first stringer, as once again I am a back-up announcer. I didn’t actually approach them about the job – they contacted me.  Turns out they need some one that can do the day games for the summer.

I also found out that the available PA announcers are all out of town on Saturday night and I’ll be working a double header that night.  I guess you could say I’m a bit on the nervous side, as I was when I started taking pictures for the local paper.  But I feel assured that things will work out exactly as they are supposed to in the bigger picture.

So for now, it’s off to the ball park….
