CLARK – Participants in Clark Recreation’s new sports broadcasting camp finished their week of activities on Friday with a trip to a Somerset Patriots baseball game in Bridgewater. There, they were able to interview Patriots’ manager and former New York Yankees Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Sparky Lyle, as well as members of the Patriots and Camden Riversharks baseball teams.
During the week-long camp, teens gained insight into game coverage, behind-the-scenes activities, and learned about sports from a sportscasters point-of-view. They practiced game preparation, writing and interviewing skills and learned the differences between radio and television calls.
