In a season that already saw Jenny Cavnar become the first woman since 1993 to do play-by-play for a MLB telecast, the New York Mets have now made their own history.
The Mets have named two new Citi Field PA announcers, Marysol Castro and Colin Cosell (legendary sportscaster Howard Cosell's grandson).
Castro is the first female PA announcer in team history.
“I appreciate the Mets for doing something they've never done,” Castro said.

New York hired Marysol Castro as one of its two new public address announcers, making Castro the first female PA announcer in the organization’s history.
She previously worked as a reporter for News 12 and worked for ESPN as a host of the Premier Boxing Championship. Castro obtained her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
Castro will make her debut as the Mets’ PA announcer for the start of the team’s homestand on Thursday against the Chicago Cubs.
The club also hired legendary sportscaster Howard Cosell’s grandson, Colin Cosell, as a PA announcer at Citi Field.
