Carlos Silva: The Unsung Hero In The Lowe's Broadcasting Booth

Carlos has not only translated radio spots but he is the Spanish influence for Yankee broadcaster, John Sterling who has made many of us Latinos who prefer to listen to English radio broadcast proud when we hear his almost perfect pronunciations of Spanish surnames. Mr. Sterling has gone beyond surnames and I personally could not help, but smile when I have heard him say specific Spanish words to describe a play, or other topic that he is addressing, like saying “El Capitan” the captain addressing Derek Jeter. It might be a small gesture for some, but it is a big deal to the over two million Latinos living in the city.

btw Carlos is pitching tonight for Scranton
