Veteran SALEM, OR sportscaster MARK GILMAN has been named the new radio voice of the NORTHWEST LEAGUE's SALEM-KEIZER VOLCANOES. GILMAN replaces PAT LAFFERTY, who is retiring after 11 seasons with the club, the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS' short-season Class A affiliate.
"This is an exciting opportunity for me," said GILMAN. "The VOLCANOES are a fine sports operation, and they have established a rich tradition of winning that I am happy to become a part of. PAT LAFFERTY is a class act who has provided local fans with lots of great memories, and I hope to be able to do the same for many years."
The team will air on Oldies KBZY-A/SALEM this season in the first year of a new three year deal.
