The Reno Aces will have a new voice as the club embarks on its Pacific Coast League Championship defense for the 2023 season following the hiring Friday of Kevin DiDomenico as the franchise’s third broadcaster in team history.
DiDomenico will serve as the club’s Content Creator & Voice of the Reno Aces for the 2023 season where he will be the lead play-by-play voice for all 150 Reno Aces games heard on RenoAces.com, MiLB.tv, Nevada Sports Net and Bally’s Sports Plus App. Additionally, he'll create team-related content that will be available on the Aces’ social media platforms and website.
“This position garnered significant national interest, and we were fortunate to have many extremely talented applicants," Reno Aces General Manager & COO Chris Phillips said in a news release. "But during the process, Kevin’s voice, professionalism, and unique skillset separated him from the rest. We are thrilled to have him on the team as his voice will leave lasting memories in the future chapters of Reno Aces’ history.”
DiDomenico joins the Aces after serving as Director of Broadcasting for the Salem Red Sox in 2021 and 2022. He also called Virginia Tech baseball for four seasons and began his professional baseball broadcasting career with the Appalachian League Pulaski Yankees in 2019. During the baseball offseason, he has served as a play-by-play announcer with ESPN+ and the ACC Network, broadcasting various sports, including basketball, football, soccer, wrestling and volleyball.
A native of Sterling, Va., DiDomenico earned a Bachelor of Arts, Sports Media & Analytics from Virginia Tech.
“Being selected for this role as the voice of the Aces is humbling, and I’m thankful to Chris Phillips, Mike Murray and Vince Ruffino for the opportunity,” DiDomenico said in a news release. “I’m excited to get started, meet the Reno Aces fans, and be able to share a wide variety of Aces stories throughout the season.”
DiDomenico replaces Zack Bayrouty, who called Reno Aces games in 2021 and 2022. Bayrouty was recently named the lead broadcaster of the Sacramento River Cats. Bayrouty took over for Ryan Radtke, the original voice of the Reno Aces.
Aces fans can meet DiDomenico during Saturday’s Fan Fest at Greater Nevada Field that begins at 11:00 a.m. The team is slated to open the season at Greater Nevada Field on March 31 against the Las Vegas Aviators, Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.
