This is amazing, as Pawtucket sends another announcer to "The Show".

BTW this also means the Orioles have lost their station in DC WTOP that carried the Birds for years.


For the third consecutive season, the Pawtucket Red Sox are pleased to announce that one of their radio broadcasters has earned a job in the Major Leagues. The Washington Nationals announced last night that Dave Jageler, the lead radio voice for the PawSox in 2005, has been chosen as their new radio broadcaster for 2006. Jageler will team with partner Charlie Slowes on Washington Post Radio (1500 AM) to broadcast all Washington Nationals games during the 2006 season.

Jageler, 34, spent just one season on the PawSox Radio Network and joins former PawSox radio voices Dave Flemming (San Francisco Giants in 2004) and Andy Freed (Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2005) in an unprecedented three-peat. The PawSox have now proudly seen one of their radio broadcasters earn the call to the big leagues during each of the last three off-seasons a feat believed to be unmatched in Minor League Baseball. Other former PawSox broadcasters who have gone from Pawtucket to the majors include Don Orsillo (Boston in 2001) and Gary Cohen (New York Mets in 1989).
