The Tri-City Dust Devils are pleased to announce the addition of Mike Boyle as the new Voice of the Dust Devils for the 2007 season. Boyle comes to the Dust Devils from Spokane, where he is a sports anchor and reporter for KREM TV and covers prep sports for the Spokesman-Review. He has also served as the radio voice for the Spokane Chiefs hockey team since 2002. “It’s an absolute thrill to be calling Dust Devils games this summer,” says Boyle. “Calling baseball full-time is a dream come true.” All 76 Dust Devils games will be broadcast on ESPN 960 (formerly KJOX). Games can also be heard live at www.dustdevilsbaseball.com.
Former Dust Devils radio broadcaster Tom Barket has accepted the position of Sports Director for ESPN 1280 in San Luis Obispo, where he will be the radio voice for the Cal Poly baseball, men’s basketball, and football teams.“My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Tri-Cities, and we’re going to miss it a ton” says Barket. The Dust Devils open the 2007 season at Vancouver on June 19th before returning to the Tri-Cities for the home opener versus Everett on the 24th. Opening Night festivities include a magnet schedule giveaway courtesy of Gesa Credit Union and post-game fireworks presented by Connell Oil. Individual game tickets for Opening Night and the rest of the season are on sale now and can be ordered by phone, online at www.dustdevilsbaseball.com, at the stadium box office, and at all TicketsWest locations. Season tickets, mini-plans, and group tickets are also on sale at the box office, by phone, and online.
