On May 16, 2022, Jim Ferchland signed a summer league contract to be the baseball play-by-play voice of the Danville Otterbots in the Appalachian League. He is responsible for calling all home games and taking part in media relations duties. This is a new team in Danville, VA as they were originally called the Danville Braves.

Jim is also the play-by-play broadcaster of the Felician Golden Falcons, a Division II school located in Rutherford, New Jersey. He was hired in October 2020 and called games for men’s/women’s basketball, men’s/women’s lacrosse, softball, volleyball, men’s/women’s soccer and baseball.

Before Felician, Ferchland served as the radio play-by-play broadcaster of the Stony Brook Seawolves, his alma mater, on 90.1 FM WUSB Stony Brook. He called multiple football, men’s/women’s basketball, baseball and women’s lacrosse broadcasts during the 2019-20 season. Jim was with WUSB for over four years where he generally got his broadcasting career started.

I want to give a special thanks to ESPN broadcaster Rich Hollenberg for teaching me the ways of how to tackle the broadcasting industry through his “Break In & Break Through” cohort. This is a demo reel of my recent play-by-play work.
