(May 2, 2013) Alvin Washington never met a sport he couldn’t call, and he’s called plenty over an 18-year career. Now the Chicago native and STAA client will set stakes in Chillicothe, MO for the summer as the voice of Chillicothe Mudcats baseball.
“Having the opportunity to finally call a prestigious summer collegiate baseball team for a season is a major milestone for me”, says Washington, who counts Cape Girardeau, MO and Washington, IA among his career stops. “I’ve been privileged to call games at the amateur level in such venues as US Cellular Field and Wrigley Field, but nothing beats the thrill of being the hometown team’s voice, especially in small town America.”
The Mudcats play in the MINK League, with teams spread across Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas. Another STAA client, Aaron Cox, was voice of the Mudcats in 2010. He used the experience as a springboard to affiliated baseball the following summer when he joined the short-season Class-A Idaho Falls Chukars. A third former Mudcats voice Jordan Carruth is currently a sports update anchor and talk show host at The Mighty 1090 in San Diego.
