Stockton Ports radio play-by-play announcer Zack Bayrouty

Just like players remember how they got the call to The Show, Zack Bayrouty breaks down in graphic detail how he received the news that he was being promoted for a day to broadcast an Oakland Athletics game in September. Its taken 13 years of due paying–long bus rides and late nights to get his shot and Bayrouty made the most of it. He reflects on his journey, support team and why Stockton has become so special. Bayrouty is classic example of how good things happen to good people.

Zack Bayrouty Reflects on his Major League Debut Behind the Mic

"It was pretty surreal. I remember pulling up and I was trying to convince myself that I belong there that day. And it's obviously humbling to get to do something like this. Not a lot of people get that opportunity and I was trying to convince myself, 'You can do this.'

Catching up with Grammy-Nominated Americana duo JC & Laney

"You've caught us at a time where I've had the unfortunate happen here with a broken foot. Normally, if I had a broken foot and would be in a walking boot, maybe over the course of the six week period that I have to be in it, I would have had maybe 12 shows. It just so happens I've been the boot 25 days and we've done 19 shows with a broken foot. We have extra together time now because I can't do a lot of things for myself...Like probably every couple we probably get on each other's nerves a lot during the day. We get off stage and that always seems to be healed. "

Winning the Game of Life–High School Quarterback Makes a Difference on and off the Field

"We're so influenced by having an image to uphold to others, having to be this person that everyone worships. Everyone wants to be that person. You have to compete with each other for likes on Instagram. You've got to look good on Instagram; you've got to look good on Facebook....I think most of it is just the pressure that's put on us teens today with school, social media, socially and everything that goes on."

Bill Herenda Breaks Down the NBA Finals and the Silencing of Drake

"It'll certainly give Durant a clear vision of what he'd be leaving behind, if he indeed does leave. Because this is rarefied air, right? Five straight Finals and it would be four (titles) in five years and three-peat. And even for Leonard, to say, 'Hey, this is working. We've gotten to the Finals'....I think winning has an effect on decision-making. I don't think there's any question about that. You know what you have here."
