Talkin’ Baseball and Charity With Ed Randall

Talkin’ Baseball and Charity With Ed Randall
BY JOE FAVORITO
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

If you have been around baseball at any point since the 1970’s, especially in any of New Jersey's minor leagie stadia from Camden to Newark, you may not know Ed Randall, but you know of him. A longtime New York radio and TV personality and published author, he now hosts the Sunday morning radio program Ed Randall’s Talking Baseball, which airs on New York’s WFAN-Radio and “Remember When” nationally on Sirius/XM Radio’s MLB Network Radio channel on Saturday mornings. Ed spent seven years in minor league baseball as a play-by-play broadcaster and pinch-hit as the public address announcer at the original Yankee Stadium in 2008 for the legendary Bob Sheppard.

Ed also has another passion, which is working tirelessly to promote prostate cancer awareness. A survivor of the disease himself, he will host the first annual Ed Randall’s “Fans For The Cure” Celebrity Dinner on March 5 at the 101 Club on New York’s Park Avenue. The dinner will serve two purposes, one is to raise funds and awareness to fight prostate cancer, and the other is to serve as a much-needed replacement for the Baseball Assistance Team (BAT) Fundraiser that is not being held this year. One of the many luminaries in attendance that night will be baseball legend Steve Garvey, who Ed will have an in-depth conversation with about all things in and around the diamond. Details for the dinner can be found at www.fans4thecure.org
