I am a professional sports broadcaster, currently the play-by-play voice of the West Michigan Whitecaps. The Whitecaps, who play their home games in Grand Rapids, Michigan, are a Class-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers in the Midwest League.
I was in college at The George Washington University when I got my first internship in baseball – with the Bowie Baysox of the Double-A Eastern League – and came to realize that professional baseball was the business for me. After spending a number of years as the Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations for the Quad Cities River Bandits of the Midwest League, I arrived at my current post in Grand Rapids.
Whether you have stumbled across this website by chance or come here by design, I hope you like what you see – not to mention what you hear. My goal is to eventually serve as the play-by-play voice for a major league team. So sit back, have a look around, take a listen... and ENJOY!

"Ben Chiswick is one of the top up-and-coming broadcasters in the business. His broadcast style and play-by-play skills are superb. His ability to stay with the play even when the action is very fast-paced is top-notch. When I listen to Ben, I have a picture of the action in my head... what's better than that?"
