NOTRE DAME, Ind. – A total of 46 Notre Dame baseball regular-season games during the 2000 season-both home and away-are scheduled to be broadcast by South Bend-based WJVA radio (1580 AM).
All radio broadcasts also can be heard live on the internet via real-audio software programs, with a link available on the Notre Dame athletic website (www.und.com). The Notre Dame athletic department also again will place real-time baseball statistics on the website during all 2000 home games.
WJVA-AM will broadcast on 38 days of the Notre Dame baseball team’s regular season, with seven doubleheaders and a two-game day at the Kennel Club Classic in Jacksonville, Fla., making up the full 46-game schedule.
The primary voice of Irish baseball for the upcoming campaign is Jeremy Gray, a native of Indianapolis, Ind., and a 1999 graduate of Ball State University, with a degree in communications and history.
Gray-who recently was appointed sports director at U-93 (1490 AM) in South Bend, Ind.-also has reported for Irish football and men’s basketball pre-game shows while serving as the play-by-play voice for Notre Dame women’s basketball broadcasts on WJVA.
Gray, who launched his broadcast career while in high school, was the winner of the Indiana Association of Student Broadcasters first-place award for football and basketball play-by-play. His high school radio endeavors also included hosting a bi-weekly political talk show on WIBC (1070 AM) in Indianapolis.
He continued radio duties in college by calling Ball State games on student radio station WCRD-FM, which is subsidized by David Letterman. Along with serving as a sportscaster, Gray was a congressional intern for House Democrat Leader Richard A. Gephardt and was student body president at Ball State.
Color commentary duties during the Irish baseball season will be shared by former Irish pitcher Wally Widelski (1994-97) and fourth-year Notre Dame baseball sports information director Pete LaFleur.
Widelski currently is serving in the Notre Dame athletic department’s marketing and promotions department as a graduate intern. LaFleur will assist with color commentary duties primarily during road games
The majority of the 2000 baseball broadcasts will air live on WJVA, with some games in February and March potentially available on a delay basis due to conflicts with other Notre Dame sports programming.
