Welcome to the party, Pal

New Midwest League radio announcer…in Burlington:

Jon Versteeg was named the Director of Broadcasting & Media Relations on Wednesday.

Versteeg comes to the Bees from the Connecticut Tigers of the New York-Penn League where he served as director of media relations in 2010 and radio broadcaster for all 76 games. He has also called games for the Joliet JackHammers (2006-2009) of the independent Northern League as well as the Salem Avalanche of the Carolina League and Tri-City ValleyCats of the New York-Penn League.

In the off-season, Versteeg works as the radio studio host for Northern Illinois University football and men’s basketball. He also calls men’s and women’s basketball for North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC.

I wonder if he’s, you know, one of those….

A 2005 graduate of Syracuse University where he covered Orange football, basketball and lacrosse on WAER Radio…

Oh, great. Another one from the ‘Cuse.  It’s almost like they have a big time broadcasting school out there or something.

John, allow John McClain and me to say, “Welcome to the party, pal!”
