For The First Time, Again: Fisher Cats' Return 'Really Feels Like Just A Return To Normalcy'

May 13, 2021

After baseball canceled the minor league season last year due to COVID-19, the Fisher Cats are back in action in Manchester this week. Tyler Murray is the broadcast voice of the Fisher Cats. He’s been looking forward to calling the play-by-play, for the first time, again.

We want to hear from you: What are you excited to do for the first time, again? Let us know at voices@nhpr.org.

Fisher Cats Broadcast Announcer Tyler Murray on the return of baseball season: “Well, you know, it’s more than just the return of baseball. I mean, a Fisher Cats game is about the return of summer, warm weather, enjoying the outdoors. It’s just been so tough — 2020 summer went by in the blink of an eye. It felt like we didn’t really get to do anything. So, baseball season being back in New Hampshire, it feels like a whole lot more than just some of the best prospects in the game coming out to show off their talent to make it to the big leagues. It really feels like just a return to normalcy, and a long overdue reward for all the challenges of the last 12-plus months.”
