LISTEN TO DEMO
Joe Klimchak attended his first Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game in 1976 and it was love at first sight, smells and sounds. At the age of seven, he had found his happy place. The bright green turf of Three Rivers Stadium, the blended aroma of nachos, beer and billowing cigars, the upbeat melodies of organist Vince Lascheid and, most of all, the dulcet tones of Art McKennan on public address. While most of his friends dreamed of being the next Pops, Cobra or Scrap Iron, this Aliquippa kid dreamed of one day becoming the ballpark announcer for his beloved Buccos. That dream came true in 1994 when he won an audition to become the club's back-up public address announcer and in 2005 when he was named the In-Game Host at PNC Park.
Now approaching his 20th season as the Pirates' In-Game Host, Joe enjoys sharing the ups and downs of his journey to help students of all ages recognize how special they are and believe in their ability to get better at any skill through practice and perseverance. He also helps people of all ages become more effective communicators by sharing lessons learned over 40 years as a public speaker.
