Today’s guest in the Green Sprout Forum is ESPN Play by play announcer Joe Davis. His is a story of luck, which is, in the words of Roman philosopher Seneca, when preparation meets opportunity.
Davis grew up in Potterville, Michigan; a small town southwest of the state capital. He had dreams of being a sportscaster, and attended Beloit College in Wisconsin. He was announcing minor league baseball games when the call came in from ESPN. Hear his story about how one’s dreams come true.
