Are You the Next Kid Broadcaster?
Does your child have dreams of being the voice of the Railers? Three talented, young fans will have an opportunity to join the broadcast team during the game and provide color commentary and play-by-play live on 98.9 FM NASH Icon, the Worcester Railers Radio Network, and FloSports TV.
To enter, please share a video of your child ‘calling a game’ or providing commentary. Videos should be less than one minute in length and should be fun! Please tag the Railers with your video on social media (IG: @railers_hc / Facebook: @RailersHC & Twitter: @RailersHC). The contest is open to youth ages 13 and under.
