Much like a good hitter, Michael Shively needs to be ready for all the pitches a day could throw at the Lincoln, Nebraska-based baseball broadcaster. Announcing minor league games for the Lincoln Salt Dogs, news pop up at the least convenient times — sudden trades, injuries and more. Shively has to be both prepared for a game and prepared to not be prepared.
At the end of the day, Shively's job comes down to a several-hour performance. He has to do a lot of research to get there, but the announcer says his favorite part of the job is when he can focus solely on the action for a few hours.
