All games will be replayed on WHIG-TV each Saturday morning at 10 and again on Sunday evening after the Stretchlon Sports Show. The show is available online at

Wes Bradshaw will handle the play-by-play duties, while Edward Greene will provide the color commentary.

He has also served as the voice of the Gryphons as the PA announcer at RMHS home football and baseball games.
