Former minor league baseball HAGERSTOWN SUNS Media Relations Assistant NICK SEKKAS heads across MARYLAND to join the ABERDEEN IRONBIRDS as play-by-play voice on WAMD-A/ABERDEEN. SEKKAS replaces STEVE MELEWSKI, who is concentrating on his duties as PD at CBS Sports WJFK-A (ESPN 1300)/BALTIMORE, as the announcer for the short-season NEW YORK-PENN LEAGUE team, owned by Hall of Famer CAL RIPKEN and his brother BILL.
"I am excited about being able to be the IRONBIRDS' #1 broadcaster and get to work at RIPKEN STADIUM," says SEKKAS. "ABERDEEN isn't too far from where I went to school (at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND), and when we travel to BROOKLYN and HUDSON VALLEY I will be close to where I grew up in NEW YORK. It's an exciting opportunity, and I'm looking forward to the season."
