A Great Day for Softball!
A great view from behind home plate. I ducked every time a ball came at the fence!
My second day at Great Lakes Radio was awesome. I headed out to Ishpeming with Heather to report on the high school girls’ fast-pitch softball game against the Norway Knights, and I was thrilled to learn the process of live sports reporting firsthand. It was a gorgeous day for softball and the girls looked like they were having so much fun. The sun was breaking through the clouds and the field was packed down and a little damp (not too dusty!). It made me miss the old days, when I played softball in middle school—I can’t pretend I was great at it, but boy, those were good times.

I’m learning more every day about how deeply involved this radio station is in their community, and I feel incredibly lucky to experience such localized reporting and participation. I didn’t know this kind of radio station could still survive in the modern media landscape! I’m impressed and honored to live in a community like Marquette, and even more-so to be interning with such a great and supportive group here at Great Lakes Radio.
