Let me begin by saying that this absolutely makes my day!
According to reports, former Detroit Tigers/Fox Sports Detroit broadcaster Mario Impemba has landed a job for the 2019 Major League Baseball season.
Impemba will reportedly join the Boston Red Sox radio team as their play-by-play announcer.
From Boston Globe:
According to sources with knowledge of the process, those expected to be in the mix are Will Flemming, who currently calls Pawtucket Red Sox games, and Mario Impemba, a longtime Tigers broadcaster who was fired — along with analyst Rod Allen —in September after an altercation in the booth. Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski wrote the foreword to Impemba’s book.
Nation, are you happy for Impemba? Do you think his former partner Rod Allen will land a job anytime soon?
