A Point Loman, Michael MacAfee, is among the top 50 candidates vying to be Petco Park’s next public-address announcer. The group of finalists was selected from nearly 800 in-person auditions and online submissions.

“The diversity of our Top 50 is a reflection of the great diversity of San Diego,” said Padres chief marketing officer Wayne Partello. “We’re taking this search very seriously because this individual will be the voice of Petco Park.”

Partello said that after reviewing the auditions multiple times, “We decided to extend the timeline to ensure that each candidate is thoroughly evaluated.”

There will be a fan vote online and via social media in early April to narrow the field from 30 to the Top 10. Those 10 finalists will announce additional parts of a Padres game between April 11 and April 20 before the pool is narrowed to the Top 3.

As their final tryout, each of the three will announce a full game.

Petco Park’s next public-address announcer will be named during the series against the San Francisco Giants (April 18-20).
