With the start of Year 3 together, the Gwinnett Braves television games are becoming a tradition for the 25 games aired on Comcast Sports Southeast.
Play-by-play veteran Mike Morgan and football and baseball color commentator Brian Jordan return for their third year of Gwinnett Braves baseball. Jordan, a former Atlanta Braves and Falcons player, has been in the booth for the G-Braves since the team moved to Gwinnett. A regular on Atlanta Braves programming on FoxSports South and SportSouth, Jordan also works on college football and baseball games for CSS.
Morgan, who began his tenure with the G-Braves in 2010, has a decade worth of broadcasting experience, both on television and on radio. He serves as the play-by-play voice of the Carolina Panthers' preseason football games and brings experience announcing college football, basketball and baseball for CSS.
The 25-game home slate of games for CSS begins with the team's home opener April 12 at 7 p.m. against Durham. At least two games each month of the season through August, with just two, May 10 versus Buffalo (N.Y. Mets affiliate) and August 21 versus Norfolk (Orioles), broadcast on tape delay. Other opponents on the TV slate include International League South rivals Charlotte (White Sox) and Durham (Rays), Lehigh Valley (Phillies), Columbus (Indians), Indianapolis (Pirates), Empire State (Yankees), Louisville (Reds), Syracuse (Nationals) and Pawtucket (Red Sox).G-Braves
In the GDP
The Gwinnett Daily Post's paper coverage of the Gwinnett Braves is just the start of the coverage offered by the GDP.
Beat writer Ben Beitzel, in his fourth year covering the team, supplements the daily coverage with his blog, giving readers an active source for breaking news, roster changes, pre-game notes and analysis and thoughts. Beyond the blog, the GDP's Twitter account, www.twitter.com/gdpbraves, is the fastest source for scores, in-game information and links to blog posts, stories and other G-Braves-related news. The Twitter account is also the best way to ask questions and provide feedback.
On the radio
From the first pitch the Gwinnett Braves ever threw, Tony Schiavone has been behind the microphone, and for the fourth season of G-Braves baseball, the long-time broadcaster is back.
Every Gwinnett Braves game will air live on WDUN 550-AM with the broadcast beginning 30 minutes before each pitch with the pregame show.
Color analyst and Parkview graduate Judd Hickinbotham, who has been in the home booth with Schiavone from the start, will return again for home games. The two have combined to see every G-Braves game played. WSB sports director Schiavone, the former professional wrestling announcer, tweets on G-Braves and other topics at www.twitter.com/tonyschiavone24.
