  • Doucet's back

    He will be on the CHRC Info 800 broadcast team for the Québec Capitales' home games. Here's a (French) link.

    See I have a problem with this. I'm not denying the resonnance Jacques Doucet had with baseball fans in the province of Québec over the years, he seemed to have shaped the love of the sport for a lot of people. But that's another example of a media that goes for the established, big name guy, who obviously don't need the gig and is, quite frankly in this case, over the hill, thus depriving a young braodcaster of a chance to make a name for himself.

    Note to all the media executives who are regulars on this borad: Enough with the nostalgia already. Take some chances. Every legendary broadcaster has had a first chance at some point. Take some damn risks. Have some faith in the up and comers. :grouchy

    From now until the end of September, I'll be chronicling in real time on Twitter the 1946 season of the International league's Montréal Royals, when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Check it out: https://twitter.com/Royals_46season

      When I hear that I was wondering with whom the Capitales de Québec are affiliated. The thing I miss the most about not having a baseball team here is not being able to go see baseball games. Did anyone here ever experience going to see them play? I was wondering about going to Quebec and watching them play. Is it worth it? Are the stands at least a little full?

        They're playing in a stadium built in the late 30's as, as we say in the historical circles "un travail de chômage" (something built to give work to the unemployed during the great depression) much like Montréal's botanical gardens. From what I saw, it's looks like a rather nice place to enjoy a game, intimite, open-aired, kind of retro an all... I almost went to work in Québec last year. I would have been a regular over there, for sure.

          Thanks for the info. Someone had told me they were a AA team I was very suspicious, I had never heard of them. Has anyone seen them play? The stadium seems like a nice walk in the past.

            Forgot to mention, it's an independant A ball team, in an independant A ball league. Not the kind of league that prepares prospects for the majors, the other kind of A ball.
