Voice of the Loggers, John Pappadopoulos
The “Voice of the Loggers” for the first 10 seasons of Loggers baseball (‘03-’12), Mr. John Pappadopoulos (Pop-a-dop-a-lus), re-joined the La Crosse Loggers broadcast team again in 2017. During those first 10 years of announcing Loggers baseball, “Pops” called every game but one during that time span. In 2013, Pappadopoulos stepped away from the Loggers but certainly not the broadcast booth as he had the distinct privilege to serve as the color analyst for the Memphis Redbirds, the Triple A affliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Pappadopoulos brings a great deal of experience with him to the Loggers, with time served as the voice of the La Crosse Night Train of the NIFL, the backup voice of the La Crosse Bobcats CBA basketball team, as well as the news and sports director at WCOW/WKLJ. Additionally, he has also spent time hosting a daily afternoon sports show on ESPN, covered the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers, and been a regular ESPN local SportsCenter anchor. Prior to his move to the Coulee Area, the New Jersey native worked in Boston as an on-air sportscaster at Sports Radio WEEI. John also has a great deal of experience working in Minor League Baseball. He has worked as a reporter or broadcaster for three different Minor League clubs. John and his wife, Polly, reside in Holmen, Wis. and they have a daughter named Olivia.

He looks forward to an amazing experience with the Loggers and is excited to entertain the fans on the broadcasts!

Talkin’ Baseball with the Loggers
‘Talkin’ Baseball with the Loggers’ is La Crosse’s only all-baseball radio talk show. The “hot stove” talk show is typically held one Tuesday a month at Castaway’s on French Island from 5-7 p.m. during the Loggers off-season. The show, which is hosted by Loggers assistant general manager Chris Callaway, is devoted entirely to baseball with areas of focus on Major League Baseball, the La Crosse Loggers, and local baseball programs.
Featured guests of the show will include Mike Haupert (UW-La Crosse and La Crosse Area Hall of Fame), the Loggers field manager Brian Lewis, Northwoods League personnel, college coaches form around the country and many local and state baseball and media personalities.
‘Talkin’ Baseball with the Loggers will be the only hot stove show of its kind in the area devoted entirely to baseball and will feature live reports from spring training camps. The show can be heard on the Eagle 102.7 FM or by attending it live. The public is encouraged to attend to interact with a hot stove discussion with nightly prizes available to those in attendance.
