During the 1994 MLB strike, the Reds decided to broadcast minor league baseball games to fill the loss of game inventory on the Reds Radio Network.

Marty and Joe called a number of Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts games that aired on 700 WLW.

Below are clips from August 20, 1994: Chattanooga vs Birmingham. The Barons had Michael Jordan on their roster.

Nuxhall interviewed Jordan for the pre-game.

I've also included a couple of Jordan at-bats....a walk a homer. The home run is called by Larry Ward, the voice of the Lookouts, who joined Marty and Joe on the broadcast.

Ward is still the voice of the Lookouts.
