Wright: SABR member Jesse Goldberg-Strassler named Ballpark Digest MiLB broadcaster of the year

From Jarah Wright at Ballpark Digest on October 2, 2019, on SABR member Jesse Goldberg-Strassler:

Broadcasters are high-profile representatives of their teams, known for their skills behind the microphone, their ability to connect to their local communities, and for making an impact in the industry. Our 2019 Broadcaster of the Year is Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, the voice of the Lansing Lugnuts (Low A; Midwest League). 

He was named the Midwest League Broadcaster of the Year in 2013 and has been nominated for this award several times over the years. The author of The Baseball Thesaurus and The Football Thesaurus, Goldberg-Strassler is known for his annual re-creation game, as well his hosting duties on the Around the Nest Toronto Blue Jays podcast.

“I’m really excited and really proud to receive this award,” Goldberg-Strassler said. “It’s something that’s a really high honor and there are a lot of really great broadcasters. Thank you to our owner Tom Dickson, Nick Grueser, our team president, and Tyler Parsons, our General Manager. I couldn’t do what I’ve done without them. Thank you to all of my number-two assistants I’ve had through the years from Kyler Ludlow through Adam Jaksa. They have been so important in helping me out.
