Red Sox president Larry Lucchino called into WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan show this morning and said the team will hold tryouts to replace Carl Beane as Fenway Park’s PA announcer. Beane died of a heart attack while driving in Sturbridge on May 9.
“What we’re looking for is a rising star,” Lucchino said. “We’re trying to find someone to fill a very big hole in the operation at Fenway Park. We lost Carl Beane tragically a few weeks ago and we’re trying to replace the voice of Fenway Park."
Lucchino went on to announce that WEEI’s Jon Meterparel, part of the D&C morning show and Boston College Eagles play-by-play man, would get a tryout at Thursday night’s Red Sox-Tigers game at Fenway. read full story
