Red Sox tab three for Fenway PA duties
The Boston Red Sox on Friday named two former Boston television personalities and a local teacher to share public announcing duties at Fenway Park this season.
Longtime broadcaster Dick Flavin will announce each hitter over the Fenway PA system for most day games, Marblehead teacher and former Red Sox public relations staffer Henry Mahegan will call most night games and former WBZ sportscaster Bob Lobel will be in the mike on most Saturdays, the team announced. The trio will be spelled occasionally by guest appearances from Boston or baseball personalities.
Long-time Fenway PA announcer Carl Beane died last May and the Red Sox rotated in a few dozen people to serve as the voice of Fenway throughout the season. The team interviewed more than 300 people for the job on a search that started in January.
