If you know anything about me, and it’s obviously OK if you don’t, you’d know all I ever dreamed of doing was play-by-play on the radio for baseball. Amaury Pi Gonzalez isn’t any different, and throughout what should be a Hall of Fame career calling MLB games (are you listening Cooperstown?) he has seen more than his share of amazing, memorable players, coaches, managers, owners, moments…
The Gibson home run? Yep. Charlie O’s Swingin’ A’s? Yep. Candlestick Park shaking during the 89 Bay Bridge Series? Uh, a big time yep.
Here’s some of what the Oakland A’s 2020 media guide says about him:
Amaury Pi-González, a pioneer in establishing Spanish baseball radio play-by-play in the Bay Area, serves as the “Voice of the A’s” for Spanish broadcasts. This will be his 27th season doing A’s broadcasts, having filled that role from 1978-93, 2009-10 and again the past eight seasons.
We just scratched the surface in this interview. Hope you enjoy.
