When he first went to the plate, he heard familiar voices all over the Oakland Coliseum’s public address system.

No, it wasn’t Amelia Schimmel, who has been the voice of PA since last year, it was her children.

“Now batting, our father, No. 21, Stephen Vogt!” They said over the loudspeaker.

The receiver was clearly caught off guard when he glanced into the booth and received a standing ovation from the Oakland faithful. Vogt spent six seasons with the Athletics.
