Bio

Ryan Zimmerman joins the RailCats in 2022 as the Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations.  

Most recently, Zimmerman served as a Broadcasting and Media Relations Graduate Assistant at Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi, where he continues to pursue a Master of Business Administration. There, he was the voice of the men’s soccer, men’s swimming and diving, and women’s swimming and diving teams while also being the main fill-in announcer for Delta State athletics. In addition to his broadcasting duties, Zimmerman also wrote preview and recap articles, curated game notes, updated athlete biographies, created graphics, managed the athletic department’s social media accounts, and co-hosted “Hey Coach,” the school’s weekly sports podcast. 

Zimmerman also possesses plenty of baseball broadcasting experience. Prior to joining the RailCats, he worked for various teams throughout the college baseball landscape. In addition to acting as one of the main voices of California Golden Bears baseball on 90.7 FM KALX, he called games for the Sanford Mainers (New England Collegiate Baseball League), Cotuit Kettleers (Cape Cod Baseball League), and spent two summers in the then-Midwest Collegiate League (now Northern League). 

In his free time, Zimmerman enjoys playing guitar, going on hikes, and spending time with friends and family.
