The Bradenton Marauders (Class-A, Pirates) are providing new opportunities for two STAA members for the 2018 season.
Matt Neverett, who joined STAA last year, is the new play-by-play broadcaster. Nate March, who has served as the voice of the Marauders for the last six seasons, has been promoted to Manager, Communications and In-Game Entertainment. He has been an STAA member since 2010.
March, the 2017 Florida State League Broadcaster of the Year, will take on expanded oversite of the LECOM Park video board staff and integration of the video board into all facets of the game day experience. He will continue to serve as the primary point of contact for media inquiries and public relations initiatives.
“Nate has played a critical role in the growth and development of our brand in Bradenton over the last six years, which makes him the perfect person to facilitate our expanded visual entertainment efforts,” Pirates Director of Sales and Marauders General Manager Rachelle Madrigal said.
Neverett will be on the call for all 140 Marauders games in 2018. He spent the 2017 season with the Double-A Birmingham Barons assisting with broadcasting and media relations. He worked under two-time Southern League Broadcaster of the Year Curt Bloom.
A 2017 graduate of Appalachian State, Neverett has spent the off-season broadcasting college athletics in New England.
“Matt is a talented broadcaster who will carry on our tradition of providing one of the best on-air products in the Florida State League,” Madrigal said.
