Andy "Bull" Barch, who we cited in our annual Ballpark Digest Awards, is leaving the West Virginia Power (Low Class A; Sally League) after six years behind the mike.
He's returning to his native Cleveland to pursue opportunities outside the baseball world.
That's a shame. Here's what we wrote about Barch in our award announcement:
Barch was nominated by most of his peers in the South Atlantic League. Besides possessing one of the great names in baseball, Barch also is heir to the legacy of broadcaster as storyteller, moving past what's happening on the field to tell many of the great stories of the game.
