The SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE RAILRIDERS, the Triple A affiliate of the NEW YORK YANKEES, have named CAROLINA MUDCATS Dir./Broadcasting DARREN HEADRICK as one of the club's radio broadcasters, working alongside Director of Media Relations and Broadcasting JOHN SADAK.
HEADRICK, who called MUDCATS games for the past three seasons and previously called TENNESSEE SMOKIES and OKLAHOMA CITY REDHAWKS minor league and WILSON TOBS summer collegiate league baseball, fills the slot left vacant by the exit of AARON BERLIN after last season to work as studio host and producer for ORLANDO MAGIC basketball.
HEADRICK said, “I want to thank JOHN and (RAILRIDERS President/GM) Mr. (ROB) CRAIN for the opportunity to return to Triple-A and broadcast games for the RAILRIDERS this season. It’s been my goal to get back to this level and I am thrilled to be able to work with a broadcaster as talented as JOHN. To do so for one of the most respected organizations in all of professional sports, the NEW YORK YANKEES, is icing on the cake.”
SADAK said, “DARREN is a five-tool broadcaster. He has a conversational style. He has proven to be a masterful storyteller. He has a booming voice. He fosters relationships with teams incredibly well and he possesses the production skill to take the feature end of our broadcasts to another level. His passion for the game, work ethic and God-given talent made him our top choice.”
The RAILRIDERS were heard on BOLD GOLD Sports WICK-A/SCRANTON-WYCK-A-W264CG/WILKES-BARRE-WCDL-A-W294BJ/CARBONDALE (NEPA SPORTS RADIO THE GAME) last season.
