Yes, it's true. An Arlington Heights native has been named the new announcer for the Chicago Cubs.
No, it's not me.
But wouldn't it be cool if it was?
Actually, the lucky guy is Andrew Belleson who grew up in Arlington Heights, attended Concordia College, and has spent the last five years announcing for the Rockford Riverhawks. He's a lifelong Cubs fan and grew up idolizing Harry Caray. He beat out 2,954 applicants!
Do any Little Merry Sunshine readers know him?
For a preview of what Wrigley Field will sound like this year, check out Andrew's YouTube video audition tape.
Mt. Prospect may have American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, but I think it's far cooler to say the Cubs announcer is from my hometown.
