Stepping up: Mets PA announcer offers kind voice amid virus

And now, for a change of pace:

NEW YORK (AP) — The requests come by the hundreds: the son of an emergency room nurse, the husband of a doctor, a hospital patient.

Colin Cosell studies them, sorts them. Normally he’d be at Citi Field, rousing the crowd as public address announcer for the New York Mets. Now he’s busy working at home, trying to cheer one fan at a time.

His creative contribution during this health crisis — crafting audio clips for everyone who asks — echoes the booming introductions big league hitters get when they step up to home plate.

“As personalized and customized as possible,” Cosell said.
