Tommy McDonald Reminisces about the History of Sports in Randleman
Tommy McDonald spoke about the history of Randleman sports starting in the 1950’s. Tommy, who has been a sports announcer for 32 years, said he was encouraged by former Randleman High School principal Harold Davis following the third football championship games to try announcing a game. He did and the rest is history.
Tommy’s interest in baseball began in the mid-1950s as bat boy for the famed Deep River League. He remembers when high school sports consisted only of football, baseball and basketball. Sports in Randleman/Randolph County have grown to include an array of teams, men and women. Through the years of sports announcing McDonald has become known as the Voice of The Tigers.
