The voice of the Rocket City Trash Pandas, Josh Caray, to speak at MCC luncheon

“Baseball play-by-play is obviously in my blood,” Carey has said about coming to the Trash Pandas. “But calling for a new franchise of this caliber is every announcer’s dream. Everywhere I go in Minor League Baseball, people are talking about the Trash Pandas and the excitement that our new team is generating throughout the country. To all the fans in Madison, Huntsville and beyond – you can be sure you’ll get my very best, every inning of every game.”

The Rocket City Trash Pandas is owned by BallCorps, LLC and will begin play April 15 in the new Toyota Stadium being completede in the heart of the Town Madison development.
