Best Reason to Keep an AM Radio 

Ken Korach

For fans who believe that baseball is the soundtrack of summer, it's essential that the voices they hear wear well over a 162-game season. A's fans are blessed with a broadcaster who gets it. Ken Korach took over as lead announcer for the locals in 2006, and he tells you what you're not seeing. "A routine fly ball ... playable" means you can exhale safely. "That's hit to right center field ... and nobody's going to get it" means you should turn the volume up. If you tune in in mid-August and the score is 10-2, you can tell from Korach's tone without him once mentioning the tally. He delivers the proper proportion on the game and the season. In baseball, like in life, not every moment is a 3-2 count in the bottom of the 9th. But when it is, and Korach's on the mic, you don't want to miss a pitch.
