Voice of UConn spends offseason calling balls and strikes (The Associated Press)

In this May 10, 2017, photo, umpire Bob Joyce watches as a junior varsity player from Maloney High School beats a throw to the plate during a game played in Marlborough, Conn. Joyce has called six national championship games as the radio voice of the UConn women's basketball team, but in the offseason he calls balls and strikes, pursuing his other passion as a high school baseball umpire.
