It may have gone all the way into the final 24 hours before the Angels’ first Spring Training game, but the Halos finally have their 2nd man to hold down their Fox Sports West television broadcasts as well as KCOP broadcasts.
The Angels announced today that the broadcast booth vacancy left by the late Rory Markas would be filled by Victor Rojas.
Here are a couple facts about Mr. Rojas so you can get to know the “new guy” who will accompany Mark Gubicza in the Angels’ booth:
- The 42-year-old Rojas had worked with the MLB Network as a studio analyst since the network started in January of 2009
- He worked as a member of both the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers’ broadcast teams before joining the MLB Network, and even spent time as a minor league play-by-play man
- He has ties to the organization as he played minor league ball for the Angels back in the early ’90s
From the Angel family to you, welcome aboard, Victor!
