Jack Corrigan celebrates his 31st season broadcasting Major League Baseball and his 14th campaign with the Rockies Radio Network. Corrigan came to Colorado after 17 years in the Cleveland Indians television booth. In addition to his work in baseball, Corrigan has been involved with play-by-play and color commentary for the Cleveland Cavaliers telecasts in the NBA and spent more than fifteen years as the lead announcer for college football and basketball games for the Atlantic Coast Conference, Ivy League, Mid-American Conference and Patriot League among others.
In the summer of 2005, Jack published his first novel, Warning Track, a book about an aging baseball player dealing with the lure and repercussions of supplement use. His second novel is titled Night of Destiny: 24 December 1944. It is a fictionalized account of an incident in World War II that involved his late father, Judge John V. Corrigan. He is at work on a third novel, a sequel involving a number of the characters from his first book, Warning Track.
