Introduction to this Site

By 7 Permalink 1

Welcome to baseball-as-i-see-it.com
This site gives you my somewhat tilted perspective on baseball’s best games of the day.
Between 1991 and 2002, I was baseball’s first blind broadcaster, riding buses around the country broadcasting games for minor league teams.
Since I left the profession I have remained a full time fan, no matter what other job I may or may not have had. A blind person sees the world-and the game of baseball-differently-I hope you find my opinions  to be of interest.

Along with my takes on the most exciting or unusual  daily games, I plan to profile the broadcasters who call the action. In the 1970’s when I was growing up, teams had 2 or 3 announcers who rotated between radio and TV. The fans knew who called their team’s games-the Hall of Fame trio in New York, Harry Kalas in Philadelphia, Harry Caray in St. Louis.
In 2015,  teams may have up to 10 broadcasters between English and Spanish radio, commercial TV and cable.
So the fans may not know who’s the person behind the voice they are hearing. I plan  to profile the great and the lesser-known broadcasters.

Finally, now and then I will offer  other features about what I still consider the world’s greatest game.

    I enjoyed reading your columns very much. My only suggestion would be to write more about the Red Sox and less about the Yankees. (just kidding-great job)

    Hello Don, I’ve just discovered your blog. I can understand being a baseball nut like me. I’m a huge Minnesota Twins fan. I listen to almost every single broadcast on the radio. I also contribute articles to a website called minnesotaconnected.com covering the Minnesota Twins and other topics. Also, I have hosted a podcast talking about the Minnesota Twins. I am looking forward to reading more of your blog. And, did I tell you I’m also blind?
    Keep up the good work!
