CLEBURNE, Texas "" The Cleburne Railroaders announced Friday that Denning Gerig has joined the radio broadcasting team for the 2019 season. Gerig will team with Brad Allred, who returns for his third season in the booth. The duo comprises the only full-time broadcasting pair in the American Association.
Gerig, 24, comes to Cleburne after two seasons with the Wichita Wingnuts, where he worked closely with new Director of Baseball Operations Josh Robertson and new manager Brent Clevlen. Gerig will assume the title of Broadcasting and Media Relations Manager, a position previously held by Michael Dixon.
"Denning is a very talented young broadcaster with a knowledge of the game and the American Association that go well beyond his years," Robertson said. "I'm confident Railroaders fans will appreciate his professionalism and the enthusiasm that he and Brad have for Cleburne baseball."
In addition to two years of experience in the American Association, Gerig spent four years broadcasting baseball, volleyball, and women's basketball for Wichita State University, where he graduated in 2016. He is a native of Wichita, Kansas.
"Cleburne has been committed from the beginning to provide our fan base with a broadcast that brings an engaging style and a two-man perspective," Allred said. "The addition of someone as talented as Denning ensures Cleburne fans will get an entertaining broadcast each night. I have enjoyed Denning's work and am very excited to partner with him moving forward."
The 3rd season of Railroaders baseball and the club's pursuit of its first division title kicks off with a four-game home series against the Sioux Falls Canaries, beginning on Thursday, May 16.
