Audio: Minor League Announcer Quits On Air

Qumar Zaman is my new hero.

The Lake County Fielders play-by-play announcer quit on air because the front office owed him money.

This is the same Lake County Fielders that had their manager quit via email because he wasn’t getting paid.

Rich Ehrenreich is the majority owner and actor Kevin Costner owns a small portion of the minor league baseball team that’s based in Zion, Ill.

Rule #1 in life is you don’t mess with people’s money.
