At a press conference today announcing his new three-year contract with the Dodgers, Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin expressed his love for the Dodgers, for his wife, and for … Twitter.
Followers of @JaimeJarrinHOF already know that the 76-year-old is a reliable source of information en Espaol, such as “Matt Kemp regresa a la alineacin de Dodgers como 4to. bate por primera vez este ao. Kemp cede el 3er. escaln a A-Gon.” (Translation: Matt Kemp is batting fourth for the first time this year. He had been batting third. He’s switching spots with Adrian Gonzalez.)
“I am enjoying that,” Jarrin said. “I am very dumb for all the technology we have now. They taught me how to send a Twitter and I’m enjoying that immensely. It is fantastic because now I can see how important baseball is for our listeners. I’m getting follower from Argentina, from Costa Rica, from Venezuela … from all over the world. I had a hint of that, but now I am seeing. They are asking me for more information on the Twitter. I am enjoying that very much.”
Here’s hoping some others in his profession follow suit.
