On Monday, SNY announced that 11-year old Jacob Resnick had won the network’s popular Kidcaster Contest presented by New York’s 529 College Savings Program and that Jacob would appear in the SNY broadcast booth on August 2nd to help call a half-inning in the Mets-Marlins game.
Well, the Mets lost the game, but young Jacob was a hit in the booth with Mets announcers Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling. Here he is calling the Jose Reyes game-tying homerun.
Pretty awesome, huh?
Great job by Jacob Resnick, a huge Jose Reyes fan, who was very organized and came prepared for whatever would occur. He knew the state of the Mets and where they needed to improve, and he was no slouch went it came to Mets history as well.
Later during the evening SNY would re-play the broadcast and you could hear the warm remarks from Gary, Ron and Keith.
This is the third year of the Kidcaster Contest, and I’m looking forward to more moments like this.
