Recording of Padres Broadcaster Jerry Coleman's reading of the Declaration of Independence to be released on July 4th

The "Voice of the Padres" Jerry Coleman did a reading of the Declaration of Independence to celebrate our nation's 237th birthday. The recording will be available at thearamcogroup.com/Coleman indefinitely starting July 4th.

If you've seen at least one Padres game this season then you've no doubt seen dozens of commercials for the Aramco Group for whom Coleman is a spokesperson.

"These timeless words are truly inspirational, especially so when read by a man like Jerry."
