Watching a game with Hawk announcing always seems like a fan is by your side and I wouldn't want it any other way.
For those who need an announcer to spoon-feed you Baseball 101 (Bob Brenly) like the vast majority of current PBP men will, more power to you.
I'm a big Hawk fan myself. He entertains me, win or loss. For me personally, I don't need someone who is too basebally.
