REPORT: Sox Pick Pirates Announcer For Play-By-Play
Neverett (We Think)
According to multiple reports, the Red Sox are tossing a curve ball at fans—picking a relative unknown to do the radio play-by-play on the team's broadcasts. Current Pittsburgh Pirates broadcaster Tim Neverett is said to have been offered the job by Sox and Entercom (WEEI) brass. Who, you may ask? Indeed! Frankly, we know very little about this guy—other than that he's 49, is originally from Nashua, New Hampshire and is a graduate of Emerson College. So, he does pass the regional 'street cred' test—but Tim Neverett!!!????. Anyway, he will join veteran Joe Castiglione in the WEEI radio booth.
