"The Voice of the Mariners"
Mark "Wulfy" Wulfhorst
Public Address Announcer
Mark "Wulfy" Wulfhorst returns after a year off as the announcer for the Mariner home games. Mark for the past four years has covered and announced local high school sports events for K-94. Prior to that he held a similar position with WCSM for 13 years and WDOH for 10 years.
Wulfy brings a professional atmosphere to the press box. He researches each Mariner player and visiting team, bringing a wealth of knowledge and depth to each game.
It may not seem so to most people, but maintaining accurate information for the fans and the players via the scoreboard is not an easy job, requiring concentration and constant observance of the umpires to keep information as current as possible.
Few are better at this job than veteran scoreboard operator Ron Heindel. In addition to keeping ball and strikes, among other items, immediately updated, Ron serves as an extra set of eyes for the public address announcer and the official scorers. Ron is also the press box's resident rock-n-roll expert, able to identify virtually any song through just a few notes, and able to give you a complete background on the artist, the date it was recorded, and just about anything else you could imagine. The Daily Standard's sports staff provides game coverage.
The Grand Lake Mariners claim the distinction of being the only team in the league with "live" music from the pressbox. Jim Maurer and his keyboard organ entertains fans between innings and throughout the game. Jim is a retired teacher. He is organist at St. Johns Lutheran Church. In 2007, Jim was honored by Little League Baseball at the Little League World Series as "Volunteer of the Year" for his work with Challenger baseball.
