BOSTON, MA – Not too many Bostonians or Red Sox fans can say, “I was the Public Address announcer for a day at Fenway Park.” Although, now, the head blogger/editor of Noontime Sports, Matt Noonan can say that comment with a big smile.
“It was such an amazing feeling hearing my voice echo across the sacred grounds of Fenway Park. In fact, I’m still somewhat numb this morning thinking about it, but again, having that particular opportunity is something I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” Noonan said.
Noonan was one of the many volunteers who assisted with Monday’s ABCD Field of Dreams event, which featured various Boston businesses sending their employees from the boardroom to the diamond.
Companies such as Bank of America, GMO, John Hancock Financial and Children’s Hospital Boston were just a few companies that fielded teams, but while their experience of playing at the ballpark will last a lifetime, Monday’s event wasn’t about wins or loses, but instead, helping ABCD continue their efforts toward raising money, as well as helping their cause toward “promoting self-help for low-income people and neighborhoods.”
“Again, I can’t help but smile, as well as relish the fact that I was able to sit in the same chair that many great Fenway Announcers have done in the past, but really, being apart of such a wonderful event that ABCD put on [Monday] was so much fun. I am really glad I could be apart of such an amazing charity event, especially at Fenway Park,” Noonan said.
