Padres job opening: Petco Park P.A. announcer

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESS

The Padres are holding open auditions for a new P.A. announcer at Petco Park.

This morning, Mike Dee retweeted this following from USA Today baseball writer, Ted Berg:

From Berg's article about the job opening:

Working as a public-address announcer for the San Diego Padres seems like an amazing job. And now it can be your job, assuming you can get yourself to San Diego on Saturday, Jan. 25 and convince a whole lot of people you’re the best candidate.

The Padres are hosting an open casting call for their PA gig. Semi-finalists will be selected from the audition to interview for the chance to show off their skills at the club’s Fan Fest event on Feb. 8, when fans will be able to vote online to select three finalists for the position.

Pro tip: "Gyorko" is pronounced "jerko."

Frank Anthony is the current P.A. announcer and has been manning the mic for the Padres since Petco Park opened in 2004. He also hosts a Saturday morning radio show on 105.7 (The Walrus) in San Diego. He is the seventh announcer in the Padres' 45-year history and will soon be joining the ranks of former announcers John Demott, Bruce Binkowski, and Bob Chandler.

Will the next voice we hear at a Padres game be a Gaslamp Baller's?
