This season, every Lawrence High School home baseball game will be broadcast live on Rider University’s 107.7 The Bronc Retro WRRC2 radio station, with play-by-play action provided by two Rider students.
Play-by-play announcer Ethan Duer, a graduate student, will be joined by Dom DeRosa, an undergraduate senior, who will provide color commentary.
Duer, who graduated from Rider in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in public relations and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in business communication, said in a statement provided by Rider, “I am very excited for this opportunity to call baseball for the Lawrence Cardinals. Baseball is an avid passion of mine. I love following the sport at various levels and especially enjoy cheering on my beloved New York Mets. With this opportunity to call these games on 107.7 The Bronc Retro, I am looking forward to gaining valuable baseball play-by-play experience.”
DeRosa will graduate from Rider this spring. He is a sports media major with a minor in sport studies.
“I love the game of baseball and rooting for my favorite team the San Diego Padres,” he said in the statement. “With my knowledge of the game, I can proudly say that I am excited to undertake this opportunity as a commentator for the Lawrence High School baseball team. I am ready to share my love and knowledge of the game to everyone listening.”
