Joe Castiglione– Biographical Brief

The 2007 season marks Joe Castiglione`s 25th season behind the microphone on Red Sox radio. He previously handled play-by-play for the Cleveland Indians on television in 1979 and 1982 and broadcast the Milwaukee Brewers on TV in 1981.

The Hamden, Conn., native has announced the NBA`s Cleveland Cavaliers, and did college basketball on New England Sports Network for six winters.

During the offseason, he teaches broadcast journalism courses at Northeastern University and Franklin Pierce College. Joe also works in fund raising for the Jimmy Fund.

Joe Castiglione is one of a few select announcers whose voice harkens fans back to the home field of their favorite team. After 30 years, his commentary has become as much a part of Boston Red Sox lore as the Green Monster, the Pesky Pole, and Yawkey Way.

In this chronicle, the beloved broadcaster offers his insider account of one of the most dominant baseball teams of the past decade—from the heartbreaking 1986 World Series and the turbulent 1990s to the magical 2004 American League Central Series and World Series, the 2007 championship season, and the state of the team today. Castiglione takes fans behind the microphone and into the champagne soaked clubhouse, hotels, and back rooms where even media had no access, and recounts such tales of his tenure as his friendship with Pedro Martinez and what it was like to ride in the Duck Tour boats during Boston’s victory parades.
