Dave Wills And Andy Freed Throw Out Rays First Pitch

Dave Wills and Andy Freed Throw Out First Pitch

Dave Wills and Andy Freed threw out tonight’s ceremonial first pitch marking their 1oth year together in the Rays Radio booth.

Only three teams have a longer-tenured radio broadcast duo than the Rays Dave and Andy. The Detroit Tigers Dan Dickerson and Jim Price have been together 12 seasons, the Baltimore Orioles Joe Angel and Fred Manfra have been together 11 seasons, as have the San Francisco Giants Jon Miller and Dave Flemming.


The honor of catching the first pitch from Dave Wills went to Jake Odorizzi and Steve Geltz had the honor of receiving Andy Freed’s pitch.


I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
