Maybe the spokesperson for the Clutch Hitters should, like, you know, want to speak

in Uncategorized by

Just thinking aloud here, but if you are the designated spokesman for an organization, shouldn’t you know how to and want to speak to the media?

“I’m not in a position where I’m comfortable giving a press conference,” said Bob Byelick, who serves as the spokesman for the Clutch Hitters. “We want to be under the radar on this. I didn’t want to say something that could be construed the wrong way.”

Under the radar? Because that’s worked so well in the past for community organizations interested in solving the city’s stadium dilemma.

Byelick said he’s more than happy talking one-on-one with reporters, and returned a phone call Thursday to the Times‘ Michael Van Sickler to discuss the meeting — in vague terms of course.

Off to a great start, Clutch Hitters.
