Ashwaubenon, Wis.-The Green Bay Rockers will have two new voices on the radio airwaves and across the Northwoods League TV webcast in 2022.

He is a native of Marblehead, Massachusetts.
“I am so thrilled and excited to head to Green Bay this summer to broadcast the Rockers,” said Baylow. “I have always been interested in the Northwoods League from my time in the NECBL and Futures League and felt this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I can’t wait to get started soon and meet the Rockers fans, players and staff.”
Taylor is a junior at the University of Georgia where he is majoring in journalism. He has experience broadcasting multiple sports including football, basketball, and baseball games since he was in high school.

He is a native of Nashville, Tennessee.
“I’m thrilled to be one of the voices of the Green Bay Rockers this summer,” said Taylor. “This marks my second year as a broadcaster in the Northwoods League and I loved every moment of 2021. I know I’ll have another phenomenal summer.”
