In following up on a piece I wrote back in late February about the Chicago Cubs seeking a new Public Address Announcer...well they found one and he comes from the "Heights".
Andrew Belleson of Arlington Heights won the position after having an on-the-job tryout and besting 3,000 other hopefuls.
Check out his video entry:
Andrew isn't an inexperienced nobody either as he's been the voice of the Rockford Icehogs for the last five years and did play-by-play during his time at Concordia University in River Forest.
So Andrew, I congradulate you and wish you the best in your first season as the "voice" of the Cubs.
He gives his new gig a go as the Cubs open the season at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates today at Wrigley.
Glad to see a hometown kid realize his dream!
