FRESNO, Calif.- Fresno State and its flagship radio station, ESPN 940 AM, announced on Thursday the affiliate will broadcast 41 regular season Fresno State baseball games with the voice of the Bulldogs, Paul Loeffler, back for his 14th season behind the mic.
"We could not be more excited about the upcoming baseball season," said Paul Ladwig, Senior Associate Athletics Director of External Relations. "To pair it with the brilliant calls from Paul Loeffler for another season really gives our audience something to look forward to. Our partnership with 940 ESPN has never been stronger and we are thrilled to have our games on their airwaves for our fans to listen to."
The broadcast schedule features five three-game series on the road - UC Irvine, Creighton, San Diego State, New Mexico and San Jose State - that will keep Diamond 'Dog enthusiasts in the game with the live call away from Fresno.
In all, 10 of the Bulldogs' 12 series will be broadcast in their entirety, starting with the season opener versus UC Irvine on Feb. 14. Additionally, eight midweek nonconference games will be on the air including matchups against California, Cal State Fullerton and Penn State.
"I can't wait to share another season with our loyal listeners," said Loeffler.
"I'm excited about following Coach Batesole and company to Omaha in March, and with the talent returning, maybe a return trip in June will materialize," Loeffler added. "There is no sports tradition in the Valley quite like Fresno State baseball, and it's a great privilege to try to capture some of their magic moments over the airwaves."
The 2014 season is less than a month away, and the Bulldog ticket office is currently taking season ticket renewals. The deadline to renew is Feb. 3, to renew call 512-278-DOGS to be apart of another electrifying season of Bulldog baseball.
"Catch the Wave!" - The flagship radio station of Fresno State baseball is 940 AM ESPN radio.
