Veteran broadcaster Bill Czaja has been with the RiverHawks since their first season. While in the press box at Marinelli Field, Road Ranger Stadium and in radio booths around the league, he has called Jason Shelley's league-record 130th strikeout in 2002, the RiverHawks' championship run in 2004 and back-to-back 9 a.m. games at Kalamazoo in 2005.
The Michigan native grew up near Detroit, where he often listened to Hall of Fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell call the action on the Tigers network.
Czaja, 36, lives in Loves Park with Max the baseball cat and is engaged to Pamela Moore of Monroe Center. The wedding is scheduled for May 7, 2011. Tickets are available by calling the box office at (815) 885-BALL.
