The Joliet Slammers have announced that Aaron Morse will serve as their radio play-by-play announcer in 2012.
An STAA client since 2009, Morse was the team’s Media Relations Coordinator in 2011 and contributed to all the radio broadcasts as well. His new title is Manager of Broadcasting and Media Relations.
“I’m excited for this opportunity,” Morse said. “I will bring a high level of energy and accuracy to every broadcast. Baseball is what I eat, sleep and breathe. My knowledge of the game both past and present should go a long way towards making every broadcast, no matter the score, entertaining. This is going to be a fun season at Silver Cross Field and on the road in the Frontier League.”
“Aaron is a very talented young man as evidenced by his selection as a Northwestern University Senior to Watch after his graduation,” Slammers President Bill Waliewski said. “I think our fans will enjoy his passion and enthusiasm for the game of baseball.”
Morse will broadcast all 96 regular season games on AM 1340 WJOL and www.wjol.com. The team’s radio broadcasts in 2012 are presented by Illinois Climate Controls.
Morse served as a broadcaster in the Southern League for the Huntsville Stars Radio Network in 2010 and spent two seasons broadcasting in the Alaska Baseball League as well. He is a proud graduate of Northwestern University where he majored in broadcast journalism. Morse spent countless hours broadcasting Northwestern sports during his time in Evanston. He is originally from Seattle, WA and is a long-suffering Mariners fan.
