Dale Duff still calling games after 42 years

This ‘local legend’ still calling games on Maine airwaves after 42 years

... The resilient Duff landed on his feet, becoming a brand manager for Townsquare Media where he is the jack-of-all-trades for sports radio 92.9 FM The Ticket and still hosts a morning sports talk show, “the Morning Pitch,” with Bryan Stackpole weekdays from 6 a.m.-8 a.m.

He still is doing play-by-play.

“That’s my favorite part of the job. Play-by-play is the most fun because you never know what’s going to happen. I like being out at games or out at practices talking to sports people,” said Duff, who prefers that to “cutting a promo or writing a script.”

His career highlights including doing the play-by-play for Maine Central Institute’s 20-14 overtime win over Lisbon in the Class D football state final in November; Joe Campbell’s putback at the buzzer to give Bangor High a 57-56 victory over heavily-favored Deering in the Class A basketball state final in 2001; the Washburn girls’ fifth straight Class D basketball state title in 2015; and covering the 1993 UMaine hockey championship although ESPN did the play-by-play for the Frozen Four.
