Jack Corrigan enters his 28th season broadcasting Major League Baseball and his 11th campaign with the Rockies Radio Network. Corrigan came to Colorado after 17 years in the Cleveland Indians television booth from 1985-2001. In addition to his work in baseball, Corrigan has been involved in play-by-play and color commentary for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA, as well as college football and basketball games for the Atlantic Coast Conference, Mid-American Conference and Patriot League.
Jack is a budding novelist, with two published works and a third underway. His first novel, Warning Track, involved an aging baseball player dealing with the lure and repercussions of supplement use. Christmas Eve 1944 is based on a classified incident during World War II. His latest project deals with the early days of the FBI surrounding the attempted assassination of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
A native Clevelander, Jack is a graduate of St. Ignatius High School and Cornell University, where he played football for four seasons. He also has a master’s degree in Speech from Kent State University. During the off-seasons in Cleveland, Jack coached football at St. Ignatius H.S., the 11-time Ohio state champions and three-time national champions. Currently, he works as a volunteer wide receivers coach with Regis Jesuit High School in the Denver area. He is also involved with his own video company that has produced a myriad of projects for sports entities and other commercial and non-profit organizations.
Jack and his wife, Lisa, have been married since 7/15/77, and they have two children. Megan, a graduate of Mercyhurst College, lives in Colorado with her husband, John, and their son, James. Michael, a Loyola Marymount University graduate, lives in Chicago and works for Zapwater Communications. Jack serves on the Board of Directors for Boys Hope/Girls Hope, a privately funded, non-profit, organization that helps at-risk children. He and Lisa are active with Seeds of Hope, a scholarship program that benefits inner city schools, as well as the Shannon Foundation, a group that helps to fund necessary medical care for children in need.
Jerry Schemmel enters his fourth season as one of the voices of the Colorado Rockies, teaming with Jack Corrigan, on flagship station 850 KOA and the rest of the Rockies Radio Network.
Schemmel was the radio voice of the Denver Nuggets for 18 years, beginning in 1992. His sportscasting career spans nearly 30 years and includes radio and television play by play of several professional and major college sports. He also spent one year as deputy commissioner and legal counsel for the Continental Basketball Association.
On July 19, 1989, Schemmel boarded United Airlines Flight 232, originating in Denver and bound for Chicago. An in-flight engine explosion crippled the plane and forced it to crash land in Sioux City, Iowa, killing 112 of the 296 onboard.
Schemmel is the author of the book, Chosen To Live. Chosen To Live chronicles the crash of flight 232 and its subsequent effects on his life. The book has been featured in such publications as Reader’s Digest, Hoop Magazine, Sports Spectrum and Guideposts.
Schemmel has been a guest on several national television programs, including “Regis & Kathy Lee,” “48 Hours,” “CBS This Morning,” “Turning Point,” “The Today Show,” “The Hour of Power,” “Good Morning America,” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
During the summers of 2003 and 2004, Schemmel rode a bicycle across the United States as a fundraiser for two Denver area charities. The efforts have raised a total of $250,000.
Schemmel is currently an assistant baseball coach and recruiting coordinator at Colorado Christian University. He spent two years as an assistant and one year as head coach (2009) at Metro State University.
Schemmel earned a law degree in 1985 from Washburn University, after receiving his undergraduate degree from the school in 1982. He also played baseball at Washburn and later was an assistant coach at the school for three years.
Schemmel grew up in Madison, SD and now resides in Littleton, CO with his wife Diane, 20-year-old daughter Maggie and 13-year-old son, Ryan.
Mike Rice grew up in the Bay Area rooting for the San Francisco Giants, hoping that John Montefusco would somehow be able to locate his breaking ball or Will Clark would hit another game-winning home run. He liked the Oakland A's, too, but had to side with the Giants in the 1989 Bay Bridge World Series. He never did like the Dodgers, and that hasn't changed over the years.
Now, he considers himself a Rockies fan. There's nothing quite like a summer night at the ball park, especially when that park is Coors Field. Mike spent enough cold nights at Candlestick Park in San Francisco to know a great yard when he sees one.
Some of Mike's most memorable baseball moments:
Mike has always been a statistics junkie, and he enjoys keeping up with the sport in various ways. He runs a fantasy baseball league and still finds something pretty cool about perusing the box scores over a bowl of cereal first thing in the morning.
One of these days, he may just dig out his old baseball cards and find out if they're actually worth anything.
This is Doug's seventh season as a Board Engineer at master control for the Rockies Radio Network.
Doug is a Colorado native who admits knowing very little about baseball before becoming part of the Rockies broadcast team. This experience has hooked him on the sport and he is now an avid Rockies fan. Having a degree in history from the Univeristy of Southern Colorado, Doug finds baseball to be the perfect sport combining athletic action and a rich heritage spanning three centuries.
Doug has also worked on a variety of programming at Clear Channel Colorado since 2003.
