The Bellingham Bells baseball team has hired Justin Allegri as the play-by-play commentator for the 2012 season, which begins June 1.
“We are looking forward to having Justin in the broadcaster booth for us this summer,” Bells general manager Nick Caples said, in a Feb. 22 press release.”Justin comes in with a wealth of experience in the communications industry. He is a very well-rounded young man who will fit in great as the newest member of the Bells organization.”
Allegri’s broadcasting background includes a stint with Fox Sports, covering professional football and baseball in the San Fransisco Bay Area. In 2009, he began covering college football and soccer for ESPN.
He began his career as KSJS, the radio station of San Jose State University, where Allegri graduated from in 2010. While there, he was the voice of the Spartans in football, baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, ice hockey and volleyball.
He is currently the sports director at KSJS.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Bells this summer,” Allegri said. “This is a great opportunity for me to expand my baseball broadcasting experience.”
