From the Aberdeen IronBirds:
The Aberdeen IronBirds, Class A short season affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, today named 970 AM WAMD as the team’s official radio network for the 2017 season. IronBirds lead broadcaster Daniel Kurish will return for his third year to call all 76 IronBirds home and away games. Game coverage will begin five minutes prior to the first pitch of each game.
“It’s wonderful to have a true partner in 970 WAMD who shares our mission of providing an opportunity for all fans to experience IronBirds game action wherever they may be,” said IronBirds General Manager Matt Slatus. “This is a great fit for both parties and we’re looking forward to working together to give the Harford County community the best sports programming experience possible.”
