Chris Welsh

Chris Welsh, a TV announcer with the Cincinnati Reds, was born in Wilmington, Delaware, but moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, at a young age and graduated from St. Xavier High School and then South Florida University.  The left-handed Welsh pitched for Robin Roberts at South Florida.  Roberts, as most of you know, was a star pitcher in the National League for many years.

Chris Welsh’s career was a spotty one at best.  His career record was 22-31.  He was known then as a crafty left-hander.  To the novice baseball fan, this means he could not throw hard so he had to depend on a lot of breaking pitches to fool major league hitters.  He came to the major leagues in the early 80’s with San Diego.  He also pitched for Texas and Cincinnati.  It was with Cincinnati that he posted a 6-9 record.  His best season was in 1982 when he went 8-9 with San Diego.

If you listen to Reds’ broadcasts regularly, you know that Welsh is very good at explaining baseball to the average fan.  He does a pre-game show in which he interviews major leaguers in spring training, and they explain different aspects of the game that are very helpful to young kids trying to learn the game.  Chris, at one time, did a lot of coaching in the Knot Hole Leagues in the Cincinnati area.
