Mario Impemba (born March 18, 1963) is an American sportscaster, currently the TV voice of the Detroit Tigers and the radio and TV voice of the Oakland Golden Grizzlies men's basketball team.

Contents

  Early life

Impemba is a 1981 graduate of Stevenson High School in Sterling Heights, Michigan [1] and Michigan State University.[2] In high school Mario showed the first flashes of his talent as a member to the school's forensic team.[citation needed] He won numerous invitational tournaments before finishing 3rd in the state final tournament.[citation needed]

  Broadcasting career

  Former Positions

At Michigan State University, Impemba volunteered to announce whatever games were being broadcast on the university sports network. As a professional, he started out announcing games for the Peoria Chiefs single-A baseball club in 1987.[3] Impemba also served as the sports director at WXCL Radio and the play-by-play voice of the Peoria Rivermen of the now-defunct International Hockey League during the 1987-88 season.[3] From 1989 to 1990, Mario served as the voice of the Quad City Angels single-A team in Davenport, Iowa. In 1991, Impemba began calling games for the Tucson Toros of the Pacific Coast League.[3]

Impemba served as the radio (KLAA) and fill-in television (Fox Sports West and KCOP-TV) play-by-play voice of the Anaheim Angels for seven seasons (1995–2001).[2]

  Current roles

Mario joined the Fox Sports Detroit broadcast team in 2002 as the Detroit Tigers play-by-play announcer.[2] Mario is teamed up with color commentator Rod Allen on the telecasts.[2]

During the baseball offseason, Impemba is the official radio voice of the Oakland University Golden Grizzlies men's basketball team on WDFN (1130 AM) as well as games on Fox Sports Detroit.[2]

  Mannerism and notable calls

Impemba always announces the game's attendance when there's 1 out left in the game, and usually rounds down, i.e. "Bottom of the ninth 2 outs, the Tigers are about to win in front of a crowd of better than 41,000 fans - 41,212 to be exact".

  Awards and other works

Impemba is a longtime active member of the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association, founded in 1948 by pioneer Detroit Tigers announcer Ty Tyson.[3]

Mario has a Tigers blog named "Last Call", as well as a website, marioimpemba.com

Mario won a Michigan Emmy Award in June 2006 in the sports play-by-play category.[2]

  Personal life

Mario's wife is named Cathy. The couple have 2 sons: Brett (18) and Daniel (15). The Impembas live in Macomb County, Michigan.[1] Brett was drafted in the 49th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft by the Detroit Tigers, and is committed to playing baseball for Oakland University.[4]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
