Cleveland baseball broadcasters, Matt Underwood, im Rosenhaus and Bob Dibiaso, made their annual stop in the Mansfield area on Thursday to talk Guardians baseball and helped raise money for the Friendly House.
A crowd of close to 120 people gathered at the Der Dutchman Restaurant in Bellville, enjoyed a great meal and chatted about the upcoming baseball season.
Underwood, a native of Ashland, who played basketball as a kid at the Friendly House, mentioned how important the organization is to the community and he's happy to come to town, not only to chat baseball, but to help raise money for the Friendly House. The annual event, which is put on by the Kiwanis Club of Mansfield, has been going on for around 15 years, and raised around $1,300 for the Friendly House.
The guys talked about the ballclub, which has a new manager, Stephen Vogt, and a very talented starting rotation ( Shane Bieber, Tristian McKenzie, Tanner Bibee, Gavin Williams, etc). Bobby D shared about the renovations at the park, which will include some new blue seats, among other projects.
Jim Rosenhaus and Tom Hamilton will call every game heard on WMAN (Mansfield) and Fox Sports 1340 (Ashland), starting with the spring training opener, February 24th and the season opener, March 28th.
