We're not saying you should turn off Dewayne Staats and Brian Anderson on Bally Sports Sun, or Dave Wills and Andy Freed on 95.3 WDAE for tonight's Tampa Bay Rays-Baltimore Orioles game, but if you do want to sample history being made, head on over to YouTube for the exclusive internet broadcast of the game, where an all-female crew of broadcasters will call a game for the very first time in major-league history!
Baltimore Orioles play-by-play announcer Melanie Newman will share the booth on YouTube's MLB Game of the Week with MLB.com writer Sarah Langs, while Alana Rizzo will be the on-field reporter, and Heidi Watney and Lauren Gardner will anchor pre- and post-game coverage.
“This is not something [like], 'Let's get these five girls together so we can show [off] the shiny new toy,'” Rizzo said with a laugh. “I mean, we've been doing this for decades. It's nice to show that we've earned this right, that this is what we've done for a long time. This is our job, and it's good that people are receiving it so positively.”
