While the NCAA is forming its Final Four men's basketball teams, I found out last Wednesday (3/24) that I'm in the Final Five of all the people that auditioned for the public address announcers' job with the Sacramento River Cats.
I wasn't going to make a big thing of it, except with my family, except Joe Davidson, a Sacramento Bee columnist who I see often at high school sporting events I cover for the Citizen, found out and wrote about it. I appreciate his words of support.
This would be a job I would treasure. I love baseball and the Rivercats are a first-class organization. Raley Field is a first-class baseball facility.
But, as you begin growing older you want to enjoy life more. I love the sport, and by doing "my thing" over a PA system, I help others enjoy their Rivercats experience.
My final audition and interview with Rivercat personnel is this Wednesday.
