“Our Love Affair with Baseball” Luncheon
Today fans of the Biloxi Shuckers had a chance to put a face to a voice they’re familiar with.
Chris Harris, the radio broadcaster for the Shuckers, addressed the crowd at today’s “Our Love Affair with Baseball” luncheon at The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art.
Harris shared stories about everything from his time playing baseball to calling games in the press box. He had plenty of tales involving the Shuckers famous 55 game road trip in their first season. He also told those attending that he is a fan of recent Mets signee Tim Tebow, but doesn’t believe Tebow “has any chance” in professional baseball.
“I grew up a St. Louis Cardinals fan, listening to Jack Buck, Harry Caray, Mike Shannon on the radio,” said Harris, “When I was growing up I sometimes turned down the TV and try to call the game, but my passion was always playing baseball. I think that when I realized I probably wasn’t going to be a professional baseball player, I found a way to stay in the game.”
