Red Sox PA man Mahegan could be part of history

BOSTON -- The unforgettable voice of Carl Beane was the public address announcer at Fenway Park from 2003 until his death in May 2012. 

Beane was behind the mic for the 2004 and 2007 World Series champion seasons. The Red Sox are one victory shy of winning the 2013 Fall Classic, and if they do win either Game 6 or Game 7 it will be Henry Mahegan whose voice is heard at Fenway.   

Mahegan, 32, a history and civics teacher for grades 11 and 12 at Charlestown High School, has shared time this season with Bob Lobel and Dick Flavin as the PA man at Fenway. Now, as the Red Sox are on the verge of winning their first World Series at Fenway Park since 1918, Mahegan gets the call. 

“It’s a little terrifying, but it’s also just crazy the way this year has gone,” Mahegan said. “From trying out over the course of the winter to the events in April to today, just the whole year has been crazy. But I couldn’t be happier to be here.”   read full story here
