The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum announces that Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman will be inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2020.

Brennaman was selected as the sole inductee for the Class of 2020 by the Reds Hall of Fame Board of Directors.

“Our Board of Directors felt strongly that Marty’s 46-years as the Reds play-by-play announcer along with his efforts supporting the communities throughout Reds Country, and his extensive list of awards and accolades was indeed extraordinary and deserving of his election to the Reds Hall of Fame,” said Rick Walls, Reds Hall of Fame Executive Director.

Next year’s Reds Hall of Fame Induction Weekend presented by PNC Bank will include an on-field induction ceremony on Saturday, April 25 prior to the Reds vs. Arizona Diamondbacks game.

The 2020 Reds Hall of Fame Induction Gala presented by Clark Schaefer Hackett is scheduled for the evening of Sunday, April 26.

Brennaman, who will retire at the end of the season, will be the first broadcaster inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame, bringing the Hall’s membership ranks to 90 including 81 players, five managers and three executives.

“Marty Brennaman’s voice is virtually inseparable from the 46 years of Reds’ history immortalized through his calls,” said Bob Castellini, Reds CEO. “Marty’s talent has greatly contributed to the vitality of this franchise, making this a well-deserved honor for him.”

To commemorate Marty’s legendary career as a Reds broadcaster, the organization is planning several events to celebrate his final home games at Great American Ball Park September 24-26, 2019.

3:48 PM EDT

The Cincinnati Reds announce plans for the final weeks of Marty Brennaman’s 46-year career as the Reds play-by-play broadcaster.

“Having Marty Brennaman’s incredible career come to a close as we are concluding our 150th year of Reds baseball is pretty special,” said Phil Castellini, Reds President and COO.

Brennaman’s final game broadcast is scheduled for Thursday afternoon, September 26, 2019.*

“It was important to me that my last regular season broadcast happened at home, so I won’t go to Pittsburgh with the team to finish the season,” said Marty Brennaman.

Some of the many activities at the ballpark include Marty visiting with fans on the concourses at Great American Ball Park before the games on September 3, 4, and 7.

For three games in September, Marty will appear at a temporary radio booth at Gapper’s Alley directly behind section 119, including a full game broadcast on Friday, Sept. 20.

• Game Broadcast: Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:10 p.m.

• Pre-Game Broadcast: Tuesday, Sept. 24 (gates open at 5:40 p.m.)

• Pre-Game Broadcast: Wednesday, Sept. 25 (gates open at 5:40 p.m.)

“The idea is to bring Marty out of the booth and amongst the fans at Great American Ball Park,” said Castellini. “Watching Marty host the radio pre-game show or call an inning will be an unforgettable experience for our fans.”

Final Regular Season Series, Sept. 24-26

As part of his final regular season series, Marty’s son, Thom Brennaman, will join him in the radio booth for the entire game broadcast on Wednesday, Sept. 25. And, for the games on Tuesday and Thursday, Sept. 24 and 26, Marty will be joined by his regular radio partner, Jeff Brantley.

“I wanted my final game to be business as usual, doing the broadcast from the booth. It is going to be very emotional for me and I want to savor every moment,” said Brennaman.

At the game on September 26, the first 20,000 fans will receive a Reds transistor radio so they can hear Marty’s call of the game while in park.

“We are grateful to our partners at 700 WLW who are eliminating the delay for Marty’s final game which will allow fans in the park to hear Marty’s calls in real-time as they are watching the plays LIVE,” said Castellini.

Post-game on field “Marty-Party”: At the conclusion of the game on Thursday, Sept. 26, all fans will be invited onto the field at Great American Ball Park to take part in a special program honoring Marty, who will be on stage with Jim Day at the pitcher’s mound.

Cavs sign former Orlando Magic power forward Jarell Martin

The Cleveland Cavaliers feel that they have enough talent on the roster without having to go out and spend big bucks on famous free agents and thus have had a very quiet offseason.

But Friday, they signed a very good swingman/power forward in Jarell Martin, formerly of the Orlando Magic.

Martin, who is just 25, was selected in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft out of Louisiana State University by the Memphis Grizzlies, the 25th player taken overall. During his four-year career in the league, he spent the first three seasons with the Grizzlies before being traded in July 2018 to the Orlando Magic.

As a freshman, Martin started 25 of LSU’s 34 games and averaged 10.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 26.2 minutes per game. He ranked ninth in the SEC among freshmen in scoring, and seventh among SEC freshmen in rebounding. He averaged 11.4 points per game in SEC action with 12 of his 18 double figure scoring games coming in SEC play. For his performance, Martin was selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team.

As a sophomore, Martin led LSU with 16.9 points per game and increased his rebounding to 9.2 per game. He had a career-high 28 points against Florida on February 21. He had 15 double-doubles and helped lead the Tigers to the NCAA Tournament.

On March 25, 2015, Martin declared for the NBA Draft, forgoing his final two years of college eligibility. Many observers from the NBA, felt he should have stayed at LSU one more year.

The talented Martin has played in 184 NBA games, plus in the G League. During his NBA career, he’s started 40, with 36 coming during the 2017-18 season and has averaged 5.4 points and 3.5 rebounds per game.

Doug Ghim overcomes obstacles to be in the hunt for Nationwide Children’s Championship and PGA Tour card

THURSDAY MEDIA GATHERING WITH DOUG GHIM

65,238 Doug Ghim 2019 NCHC 1st round 3rd place He bogeyed third hole and talks about his 1st round 8 15 2019

65,239 Doug Ghim 2019 NCHC 1st round 3rd place He talks about changing caddies due to not making cuts in a row 8 15 2019

65,240 Doug Ghim 2019 NCHC 1st round 3rd place Talks about his Eagle on 12th hole 8 15 2019

 

Upper Arlington/Columbus, O. – Doug Ghim is more than capable as a golfer.

The 22-year-old Des Plaines, Illinois native, who played at the University of Texas, was named the 2018 Ben Hogan Award winner which goes to the best college golfer annually. On May 18 of that same year, he was became #1 by the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

He turned professional also in 2018, just prior to the Travelers Championship.

But during this 2019 season on the Korn Ferry Tour, he has struggled at times. Coming into this tournament, he has missed three straight cuts and has had up-and-down play. The Longhorns standout has made six PGA Tour starts this season.

Also, he has tried out at least three caddies. His dad, Jeff, had been on the bag for awhile. But Doug, reluctantly decide to let him go. He just felt, he needed more of a professional’s outlook from a caddy. In his own words, he has had three different caddies in the past five events. Add Ross Thompson for five, six months and Lance Bennett. Recently he has picked up an old caddy from his past, Micah Fugitt.

Ghim told the media on Thursday, that he went back to Fugitt because he helped him play well at Torrey Pines and they had a great week together. He offers Ghim experience, calmness, levelheadedness and a positive presence. That is what all golfers need to be successful. It is more to it than just hitting the ball down fairways and into the cup on the green.

He is trying to get his first PGA TOUR card and needs to place high or even win in the three Korn Ferry Playoffs which started here in Ohio’s capital city on Thursday.

With Fugitt at his side this week, Ghim had a solid opening round of 6-under par 65 to sit stroke behind leaders, Viktor Hovland and Cameron Percy.

The winner of this event will earn 1,000 Korn Perry Tour points and $180,000.

Since the 2013 season, the Korn Ferry Tour is the primary pathway for those trying to earn their PGA Tour card.
