Skeeters Introduce Ira Liebman as the “Voice of the Skeeters”

The 2013 season will mark a full decade in baseball for Ira Liebman and his second season with the Skeeters. Liebman is not only the new lead broadcaster, but he was also a part of the broadcast team during the club’s inaugural season.

“I feel honored to be named the voice of the team,” said Liebman. “We have Skeeters fans not only in Fort Bend County, but in the Greater Houston area, and radio is the perfect way to reach them.”

Prior to joining the Skeeters, Liebman worked for the San Angelo Colts as the director of broadcasting and community relations (2010-11). He started with the Colts as the team’s director of broadcasting/media relations and marketing (2006), working the inaugural season of the United League as the “Voice of the Colts.”

Between his stints with San Angelo, Liebman worked for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox as the director of community relations and marketing. He was also the Sky Sox on-field host and radio broadcaster. The following season, Liebman worked for Major League Baseball as the media liaison officer for Team Australia in the 2009 World Baseball Classic.

“Being part of a startup team was a lot of hard work, but it has been so worth it,” said Liebman. “I was part of the inaugural broadcast last season, but to have a role on the first-ever Skeeters radio broadcast is going to be great. KBRZ has already been great to work with and they are as excited as we are to have all 140 Skeeters games broadcast via radio.”

Skeeters game broadcasts will feature a fully-integrated pregame show, sponsored by Renewal By Andersen, including a recap of the previous game, interviews with players and coaches, in-depth starting lineups and other news with a postgame show and highlights to follow.

Eight-game and full-season ticket plans are still available, so fans are encouraged to act now and be a part of the 2013 season excitement.

I wish I had this type of game at 14. Young baller Seventh Woods had been labeled “The BEST 14 Year Old In The Country” by Hoop Mixtape and from this highlight video, I understand why. This dude looks like a beast. Let’s hope he can keep it up a few more years so we can see him in the NBA.
