Jackets are Champs

What a way to finish up the season, with the GreenJackets winning a South Atlantic League Championship. This was a special team, full of a lot of young talent. They came together in what was for most of them their first full season of professional baseball.

I had a lot of fun this season and the memories will last for a long time. Great job everyone! To everyone on the team, the players, the coaches, the staff. You did it. You will go down in the South Atlantic League history book as one of the best teams, finishing with a record of 93-50, 43 games over the .500 mark.

It is always a wierd feeling for me when the season is over because I go from working 18 hour days to nothing. I all of a sudden get to sleep in, I don't have to work at nights and I don't have to talk as much. For at least a week I am very stir crazy not knowing what to do. It's especially wierd feeling for me this time around because I am out of a job after broadcasting one of the most amazing baseball seasons capped off with a Championship.

For the past two years I have seen and broadcasted every single inning of baseball for the Augusta GreenJackets, all 280 games plus the playoffs.

Now the time comes for me to begin my search for a new job. I hope a team is out there that is willing to take me on board.

Anyone out there looking to hire an out of work broadcaster that just called a Championship season for the Giants Single-A team?
