As we begin counting down the day till the Worcester Red Sox kickoff their 2022 season, Thursday the team released a statement announcing the WooSox 22 broadcast team.
Tyler Murray, who many folks in North country probably know from being the lead broadcaster of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, has been hired to replace Josh Maurer, who last month accepted a job as a radio broadcaster for the Milwaukee Brewers.
“The chance to work with terrific broadcasters and good friends like Jim Cain, Mike Antonellis, Jay Burnham, and Cooper Boardman – and following in the legacy of Josh Maurer – is an absolute dream come true. When I had the chance to fill in for a few WooSox games last season, I could tell Polar Park was a special place, and I can’t wait to call it home,” said Murray.
Murray, who lives in Nashua, NH with family is a Medfield, Massachusetts native and a Xaverian Brothers High School and Boston University graduate. In 2010, Murray did an internship with CBS News Affiliate WBZ-TV.
In their statement on Thursday, WooSox said “Tyler filled-in on radio for a handful of WooSox games last season and has also provided play-by-play for Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training on the Sportsnet Radio Network and for the New Balance Future Stars Series at Fenway Park, Citi Field, and across the country. Beyond baseball season, he has provided play-by-play for a variety of sports and schools in New England over the past 10 years including Holy Cross, UMass, Harvard, Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern, among many others.”
WooSox said “Murray will join returning members of the WooSox broadcast team – Jim Cain, Mike Antonellis, Jay Burnham, and Cooper Boardman – to call WooSox action on both radio and television.”
All 150 games this season will broadcast on the WooSox Radio Network, led by flagship Nash Icon 98.9 FM along with several other stations along the Network.
Also, in this season 75 home games at Polar Park will once again be televised on NESN or NESN+.
