Additionally, all 36 Rafters’ home games at historic Witter Field will also be streamed live on the Northwoods League Portal.
Holt got his start in broadcasting as a producer for the Inland Sports Show on Fox Sports 1350 AM in Riverside, CA. Last summer, he worked as the broadcaster and media director for the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs of the Expedition League, a summer collegiate league in Great Plains.
