GreenjacketsAUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Augusta GreenJackets announced Wednesday that they have reached a flagship radio agreement with WRDW-AM 1630 to broadcast a complete 140-game schedule of live play-by-play coverage for the 2007 and 2008 South Atlantic League seasons. The games will also be streamed live on the club's website: www.greenjacketsbaseball.com.

This marks the first time in five years that the GreenJackets have had a complete schedule of live radio play-by-play coverage. The decision comes just weeks after Augusta completed a landmark 2006 season, which included a franchise best 92-47 record, a South Atlantic Southern Division title and the second-best attendance increase in all of Minor League Baseball under the new ownership of Ripken Baseball.

"Building a full radio broadcast schedule for our games is another big step for the GreenJackets organization and Ripken Baseball," said GreenJackets General Manager Nick Brown. "We are always looking for new ways to entertain and inform our fans, and now we can do this through the radio and the internet."

"We're excited to grow our relationship with the GreenJackets by once again broadcasting the games on News/Talk/Sports WRDW-AM," added Kent Dunn, General Manager of Beasley Broadcasting. "This season will help solidify our local sports commitment on WRDW and prove to be a great asset for GreenJacket fans."

To coincide with the new radio agreement, the GreenJackets have also announced the hiring of veteran Minor League broadcaster Bo Fulginiti as director of corporate marketing and broadcasting. Fulginiti, 26, will serve as the official radio voice and media contact for the ballclub. He is a 2003 graduate of Georgia Southern University who comes to Augusta with nine years of broadcasting experience and four seasons of Minor League Baseball experience. He began his baseball career as an on-field announcer with the Savannah Sand Gnats in 2003, and spent the next two seasons as the director of broadcasting and public relations for the Daytona Cubs of the Florida State League in 2004-05.

Fulginiti returns to the southeast after most recently serving as director of broadcasting & public relations for the Stockton Ports of the California League during the 2006 season.
