Hudson Valley PA announcer calls it in via Skype

Talk about phoning it in: Rick Zolzer of the Hudson Valley Renegades (short season A; NY-Penn League) became the first P.A. announcer to perform his duties from home via Skype.
Zolzer delivered every player introduction, announcement and between-inning contest while sitting poolside at the comfort of his own home.
“We are always looking to use technology in new ways,” said Hudson Valley Renegades General Manager Eben Yager, “and tonight it gave us the opportunity to do something fun that no other team in sports has accomplished.”  Fans were able to follow Zolzer by watching the ballpark videoboard throughout the game.    read full story here
