A Broadcaster’s Reading List
Every baseball broadcaster needs certain books in order to survive the season. In the last 48 hours, I’ve had virtually everything on my in-season reading list arrive on my desk here at McCoy Stadium. Here are the books I make sure to have with me during each game:
Red Sox Media Guide
This has everything I need on the Red Sox and their minor leaguers.
PawSox Media Guide
Produced in-house, this 226 page book has all of our club’s history, stats, and player bios.
Baseball America Prospect Handbook
This awesome book breaks down the top 30 prospects in every farm system.
This is my favorite. I’ll score all 144 games in this 330 page book where I keep track of every at-bat of the season.
International League Media Guide
Produced by the league office, this has statistical information on the I.L. along with interesting league history.
PawSox Official Program
Although I won’t use this as much as the Media Guide, our graphics department did a great job with our program – it’s only $3.00!
Maybe this is a stretch, but I’ll be seeing the movie Saturday night with my wife, Heather. Our last date night before the season starts.
Hard to imagine, but this will be our last weekend without PawSox baseball until September. Wouldn’t you know it, we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow! That might not be the worst thing in the world – I have some reading to get caught up on.
