Welcome to the Home of the Sea Hawks
Redondo Union High School Baseball
First Annual Redondo Baseball Golf Classic goes off in grand style!
Redondo Baseball held it's first ever Golf Classic fundraiser in fine style on Monday night. Los Verdes Golf Course was the venue and it turned out to be a great day for golfing. The attendance was much more than expected and the all-day golf/dinner event was a wonderful celebration as the end cap to a great season across the Redondo Union High School program. The function was also used as a night to help send off long time teacher and baseball coach Tim Ammentorp, from what will be known as a very successful and distinguished career at Redondo Union, both in the classroom and on the baseball diamond. Thanks to all who attended and we will see you again next year!
Proceeds from the event will help continue to fund the baseball program and historic Memorial Field.
New voice in the Sea Hawk nest!
If you've attended a Sea Hawk baseball game lately, you would have noticed that wonderful voice booming over the PA during games. Or maybe you've been the one looking to see "who was that announcer?" Redondo Baseball has been lucky enough to gain the services of Daniel Tom, a freshman Communications/Journalism major at Cal State, Dominguez Hills. He has announced games for several local teams, but we hope he makes Memorial his home for a few more years. Daniel grew up just a stone's throw from the Redondo field. Being a local kid and seeing all the wonderful opportunity in So. Cal, it's not surprising that Daniel would like to pursue a career as a Public Address Announcer, along with holding a job in sports radio. His dream gig would be to work for the Dodgers, USC or the Lakers. Daniel grew up listening to the great PA announcers in our area....great voices like Lawrence Tanter (Lakers) and Dennis Packer (USC). He prepares for all of his announcing jobs with the same diligence you'd expect of a pro. He goes over notes and line-ups the night before and learns of special promos happening at the next day's game. He gets to the field early and does a sound check. He then goes over the line-ups for both teams and gets the proper pronunciation for each player, as well as going over in-game announcements for sponsors, events, etc.
Daniel's passion for sports grew stronger throughout his life because he couldn't always be as active as he wanted or participate in highly competitive activities, because he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age. Daniel decided to channel his love for sports into the microphone and he knew that if he was the "game day Voice" he'd always get in free and have the "best seat in the house!"
Look for Daniel at Sea Hawk games and say hello. Best of luck Daniel, and thanks for bringing a pro-stadium sound and experience to Memorial Field!
