To Joe Maddon, the crack of Jose Lobaton's home run off Red Sox closer Uehara reminded him of same sound he heard listening to Cardinals baseball on KMOX radio growing up in Hazleton, Pa.

10/7/13, Tampa Bay Rays Manager Joe Maddon in his ALDS game 3 post game interview on MLB Network tv recalled Jose Lobaton's walk-off home run tonight v Red Sox closer Uehara approximately as follows:

I heard that sound (imitates sound of crack of the bat), that sound you'd hear listening to the Cardinals on KMOX (radio) laying on the floor in Hazleton, Pennsylvania.

Maddon grew up in Hazleton, Pa.


50,000 watt radio stations like KMOX sold baseball nationwide
