The Chatham Athletic Association announced today that play-by-play broadcasters Cooper Boardman and Josh Schaefer will return in 2019 for a second season calling Anglers baseball. Boardman, a sophomore at Syracuse University, and Schaefer, a junior at Arizona State University, will broadcast all regular season and postseason A’s games live on the Cape Cod Baseball Network.
“We are delighted to have Cooper and Josh back in Chatham for a second summer together,” CAA Media Consultant Dan D'Uva said. “Already among the most talented college broadcasters in the country last year, the chemistry they’ve developed and skills they’ve honed will make our 2019 broadcasts even more enjoyable and informative.
“An article written about Cooper and Josh published by The Ringer in August shows the level of commitment and passion the two have for their craft,” D’Uva said. “Like the players on the field, Cooper and Josh make the most of their talent by striving to improve each day. We’re fortunate to have them as our broadcast voices and representatives of the team.”
For the 17th consecutive season, fans can enjoy all Chatham A’s game broadcasts, home and away, free of charge on the Cape Cod Baseball Network in conjunction with long-time service provider TRZ Teamline. Live audio online and by toll-free telephone number is available for all games. Enhanced video streaming is available for all home games.
Each broadcast of Chatham Anglers baseball begins with a 20-minute pregame show, including The Manager’s Show with Tom Holiday and Catch of the Day featuring player guests. The Anglers Extra postgame show follows each game, complete with highlights and interviews. Additional broadcast content will be published on the Chatham Anglers’ digital media channels, including SoundCloud and YouTube.
