Boxer Tales: Rich Burk '88

“I’ve been preparing for this since I was growing up and loving baseball.”

Rich Burk ’88 has always been a baseball fan, but it wasn’t until his junior college coach pointed him to Pacific University that he began to consider a career as a baseball announcer.

Burk, who spent the better part of a decade as the voice of the AAA Portland Beavers, is back at the mic as the radio announcer for the new Hillsboro Hops.

Read more of his story in the Fall 2013 issue of Pacific magazine, pacificu.edu/magazine, coming in late October.
