Baseball and the Media Committee Meeting: The Alain Usereau Interview

If you are planning to be at SABR 47 at the Grand Hyatt in New York City, please consider carving out an hour in your calendar before dinner Saturday night to attend the Baseball and the Media Committee meeting, taking place Saturday, July 1, in the Empire State Ballroom at 5:15 pm.

We will be conducting a live “Working The Game” interview with Alain Usereau, play-by-play broadcaster who works major league baseball games for the French-language Canadian sports network RDS. Learn how Alain conducts live game broadcasts from RDS Montreal studios, how that differs from working games at the ballpark, how he deals with the unique challenges of doing live baseball broadcasts in French, his memories of the great Expos teams of the ’70s and ’80s, and much more.  The last 15 minutes of the meeting will be set aside for members of the audience to ask their own questions of Alain.

You do not need to be a member of the Baseball and the Media committee to attend and enjoy this unique experience.

We hope to see you there!
