This past week the Lancaster JetHawks, the local class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox named our Radio Rat as their new General Manager. Congratulations Radio Rat.
In addition to his illustrious radio career in the High Desert, Radio Rat was the JetHawks stadium play by play announcer for many years. This career move from radio to baseball will allow Radio Rat to indulge his baseball passion. He was a star with our Van Nuys Demolay team in the Southern California Jurisdiction during the early 1970's as well as being a member of the Monroe High School Team.
When Radio Rat was with Clear Channel radio he was instrumental in raising his stations profile by getting Clear Channel to sponsor the JetHawks stadium. His marketing experience will help expand the teams exposure in the High Desert and beyond.
A few summers ago my wife and I and some friends attended a JetHawks game and it was a total blast. If you are anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area you should make it a point to attend a few games next season. The minor league experience at Clear Channel Stadium is great fun and a wonderful place to take your family. Check out their website for more information and keep an eye out for the 2009 season schedule.
As Radio Rat said when he sent me the e-mail telling me he had the job, "Play Ball"
