My new broadcast partner for 2015

The Sea Dogs have announced Mark Perlman-Price as the team’s new Assistant Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations for the 2015 season.  Perlman-Price will join Mike Antonellis on the radio broadcast for all 71 Sea Dogs home games this season, as well as assisting Director of Media Relations Chris Cameron with other duties.

A native of Newton, MA, Perlman-Price spent the 2014 baseball season as the Broadcast Assistant for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (AAA-Philadelphia), where he was the flagship producer for the IronPigs Radio Network on ESPN Radio 1230/1320 Lehigh Valley and also served as the studio host for the IronPigs pre and postgame shows.  His previous work in baseball includes a three-year stint as the team broadcaster for the New Bedford Bay Sox of the New England Collegiate Baseball League, where he was voted to represent the Eastern Division as broadcaster for the 2013 NECBL All-Star Game.  Perlman-Price’s other broadcasting experience includes two semesters at Harvard as a member of the broadcast crew for the Ivy League Digital Network, and three seasons calling high school football games on radio in Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket as well as on the internet at capeandislandsports.com.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining Mike on the Sea Dogs broadcasts this season,” Perlman-Price said, “I had been hoping to be back in the broadcast booth this season and as a lifelong Red Sox fan, the opportunity to do so for an affiliate is really a dream come true.  I’ve been to Hadlock Field as a fan and know that the Sea Dogs are a top notch organization, so I feel proud to be able to serve the team both over the airwaves and also in the front office.”

Perlman-Price is a graduate of Indiana University, where he received a B.A. in journalism with a minor in music.  You can find him on Twitter @mtriplep.

The Sea Dogs open the 2015 season at Hadlock Field on Thursday, April 9th, at 6:00 PM against the Reading Fightin Phils.  Tickets for the 2015 season are currently on sale and can be purchased by calling the Sea Dogs Ticket Office at 207-879-9500 or online at www.seadogs.com.  All 142 Sea Dogs games can also be heard on the U.S. Cellular Sea Dogs Radio Network: 95.5/95.9 WPEI Portland (flagship), WKTQ 1450 AM South Paris, and WTME 780 AM Rumford.

Luck of the Irish…Opening Day is soon

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! And a Happy Birthday to Celtics Executive Danny Ainge. The luck of the irish to have his birthday today.  In addition to his great career with the Celtics, Ainge started his career playing professional baseball, landing in the Majors with Toronto.

Happy Birthday to Danny Ainge.

Happy Birthday to Danny Ainge.

Baseball birthdays on this St. Paddy’s day: Chris Davis, Cito Gaston, Tim Lollar (as a pitcher, had a pinch-hit single for Boston), Bill Mueller and John Smiley

I’m assuming Monday’s work production will slow down a bit with people franticly filling out their brackets. I love March Madness because it signals the start of baseball season.

  • This Sunday I leave for Ft. Myers and will be covering the Sea Dogs and the Red Sox Organization for a few days.
  • Former Sea Dogs reassigned today: RHP Allen Webster, C Christian Vazquez optioned to AAA Pawtucket. SS Deven Marrero reassigned to minor league camp.
  • In case you missed it, my broadcast partner is Dan Acheson. He was with me in 2012 – great to have him back.
Deven Marrero shined in big league camp. Could start the year in Portland.

In addition to doing the play-by-play for the Portland Sea Dogs, I host a Saturday show on 96.3 FM and thebigjab.com, called the Saturday Morning Jab.  This past Saturday, Boston Globe sports writer Dan Shaughnessy joined me on the show, to talk about his best-selling book, Francona: The Red Sox Years.

My new broadcast parter

Once February hits, the juices get flowing to open up another exciting season on baseball. I’m very happy to add Matt McCarthy to the broadcast…What better way to learn more about Matt? Here’s his first blog post.  

Hello Sea Dogs fans,

First of all, a big thank you to Mike Antonellis for allowing me to use his blog to introduce myself. My name is Matt McCarthy, and I will be Mike’s partner for the upcoming season. It is a true honor to be working for the Sea Dogs this season. Growing up in Carver, Massachusetts (the former cranberry capital of the world!), I am a lifelong Red Sox fan. The opportunity to work in baseball is exciting enough, but to work for a Red Sox affiliate makes what I do for a living that much more exhilarating. Coming to the ballpark every day does not seem like work.

In December, I graduated from Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York with a degree in Television-Radio. It was at Ithaca where I caught the radio bug working for our student-run station, WICB-FM (currently ranked third in the nation in Princeton Review’s college radio rankings, not that we like to brag or anything…). Working at WICB was one of the truly great experiences of my life. I was fortunate to be surrounded by many broadcasters who were not only extremely talented, but also excellent people. My time at Ithaca gave me the passion, and the desire, to pursue a career in broadcasting.

That desire continued to grow this past summer when I called games for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League. I cannot say enough nice things about the Cape League; it would be hard to find an environment like it elsewhere in the country. It’s poetically Americana. There is just something special about the nation’s best college talent all coming to the quaint, small, Cape Cod towns to play baseball (some of the fields don’t even have lights). Calling games on the Cape and watching the future stars of baseball play every night was an unforgettable experience.

The truck has left for Fort Myers, and soon pitchers and catchers will be reporting. Baseball season is upon us once again. I look forward to seeing you at Hadlock Field this year, but on nights where you cannot make it to the ballpark, I look forward to you joining us on the Sea Dogs Radio Network. The 20th season of Sea Dogs baseball should be a memorable one, with a number of the Red Sox top prospects expected to see significant time in Portland. I’m so happy to be along for the ride, and I’m happy that you’ll be along for the ride as well. Stay warm, summer is just around the corner!
