Tim LeCras is getting his first swing at minor league baseball. An STAA client since December 2011, LeCras is joining the broadcast team of the Evansville Otters.
LeCras will be announcing a few innings for each of the home games while assisting with game notes, press releases, social media, and the production of each broadcast.
A graduating senior at Seton Hall University, LeCras has excelled throughout his college career working in a number of different platforms. He is a play by play announcer and an Assistant Sports Director at WSOU, one of the nation’s top college radio stations. He also is the Assistant Managing Editor for The Setonian, the student newspaper.
“Tim comes to us with significant collegiate broadcast experience,” said Otters president Bill Bussing. “He should complement play by play announcer Mike Radomski and color commentator Bill McKeon well.”
“Tim’s resume was very impressive,” Radomski said. “His character, work ethic, knowledge of the game and passion for the sport will be an added bonus to our organization this year.”
“I’m honored and extremely excited to be joining the Evansville Otters organization,” Tim said. “Baseball and broadcasting have been a major part of my life for as long as I can remember, now to bring the two together with the Otters is a dream come true.”
LeCras will be leaving his native New Jersey in a few months to begin his first summer with a professional baseball team, a move he is thankful to make. He said, “I look forward to the opportunity that the Evansville Otters have given me, and can’t wait to be a part of one of the Frontier League’s greatest baseball communities.”
