From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alex Anthony is best known as the Public Address announcer for Major League Baseball's New York Mets, a position he held from 2004-2017, first at Shea Stadium and then at Citi Field since the Mets moved there in 2009. He has been called the "Voice of the Mets."[by whom?]

Announcing career

Before becoming an announcer for the New York Mets, Anthony was the PA announcer for New York Islanders games at the Nassau Coliseum from 1995-1998. Anthony also announced New York Jets games at Giants Stadium and New Meadowlands Stadium from 2002-2008, while also announcing for the New York Mets. He later became the backup PA announcer for the New York Rangers from 2008-2012 while still continuing to announce for the Mets. In the offseason before the 2018 season, Anthony was fired from the Mets.[1][2] He returned to the New York Islanders since their move to the Barclays Center in 2015, when current Islanders PA Announcer Roger Luce is unavailable,[3][4] and is one of two game day PA announcers for the New York Jets.[citation needed]

He was the announcer for the US Open Tennis Championship in 2002 and 2003.[citation needed]

Anthony served as a PA voice during the 2006 National League Championship Series, the 2013 All-Star Game, and the 2015 World Series.[citation needed]

Childhood

Anthony grew up in Garden City, New York, a largely upper-middle class suburb of New York City. He came from a Greek-American family, and his father was a furrier.[citation needed]

He was a very good baseball player — going on to play for Adelphi University, but was even more well known in his community for providing play-by-play commentary of neighborhood stickball and softball games.[citation needed]

Other Announcing Work

Apart from in-stadium sports announcing, he also does voice-over work on several radio and television commercials, and video games, such as Grand Theft Auto.[5] Anthony also works as an announcer for harness racing events held at Yonkers Raceway on days when the Mets are not playing.[citation needed]
