Alex Birsh '11, right, produces a game broadcast for QBSN with co-director, Corey Hersch last year.

Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network alumnus and former co-director Alex Birsh, ’11 has been chosen to broadcast a game today at historic Fenway Park.

The match-up is the New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Stars vs. Team USA Collegiate National Team exhibition contest at noon.

Birsh will work alongside Sal Accardi ’09, another Quinnipiac alum. Both broadcasters were chosen to represent the New England Collegiate Baseball League.

This summer, Birsh began his second season as the broadcaster for the Keene Swamp Bats and third in the NECBL.

According to a Swamp Bats press release, Birsh said:

“It still hasn’t sunk in that the NECBL has chosen me to represent them in the broadcast booth. It makes me proud to call myself a Keene Swamp Bat, as well as a Quinnipiac University alum. … I can’t wait to represent both in one of the finest fields in the world.”

You can listen to Accardi and Birsh’s call of the game at www.teamline.cc or at www.necbl.com.

New Quinnipiac alumni already are doing great things out in the work world!
