Welcome to ‘Riders Insider!

Hi, welcome to our new blog!  I’m the club’s radio play-by-play broadcaster, Aaron Goldsmith.  It’s a typical Thursday during the off-season here at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco.  This morning I gave at talk to the broadcasting class at TCU, and tonight I’ll be speaking at The Boys & Girls Club of Frisco.  That reminds me, if you ever need a speaker at your school or civic group, I’d love to contribute!  During the off-season a big part of my job is touring the Metroplex speaking to various organizations about the ‘Riders, how I got into the business, and what it’s like working in professional sports.  I can always be reached at

Right now I’m in the process of hiring our No. 2 broadcaster for 2011 and our seasonal Media Relations Manager.  Both Jordan Roberts and Reese Gordon did a great job for us last year and I’m confident will be moving onto full-time employment in 2011.  Once our media department is fully staffed you can expect even more posts on here about the happenings at Dr Pepper Ballpark.
Opening Day is scheduled for April 7th vs. Springfield.  Remember when Blake Beavan started on Opening Day last year against the ‘Cards?  What a stud.  He picked up the win, by the way.
