The 38Cliches blog says Glenn Geffner is leaving the Boston Red Sox radio booth and heading to Miami to become the number two announcer for the Florida Marlins.
In fact, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes that the Goofster beat out 146 applicants for the job (?). Glenn will work next to legendary announcer Dave Van Horne who is one of the best in the game. Unfortunately, Marlins fans will be subject to Goofie for four innings which is the same amount that Red Sox fans had to endure last season.
Here’s the official press release from the Marlins.
And South Florida baseball fans will have to deal with Goofie for the entire season unlike in Boston where he called an estimated 120 games including the World Series (unfortunately Glenn is on the 2007 World Series DVD’s).
But for Red Sox fans, this is great news. So long, Glenn.
