Variety of voices will announce at Fenway Park


TORONTO -- The Red Sox will go with a public-address-announcer-by-committee system this season.

Dick Flavin, who spent 20 years in Boston television, will draw the assignment Monday on Opening Day against the Orioles and do most of the day games.

Bob Lobel, a longtime sportscaster in Boston, will do Saturday games.

Henry Mahegan, a former Sox public relations maven and current school teacher, will do the bulk of night games.

A total of 342 people auditioned for the position to replace the late Carl Beane, who died last May.
