Get to Know: Marshall Kelner, Mighty Mussels Broadcaster

While in Ft. Myers, I chatted with Ft. Myers broadcaster Marshall Kelner in the Hammond Stadium press box on the team's scheduled off day. Kelner is a Minnesota native who has worked in several minor league cities in his young professional career. We discussed growing up as a Twins fan, going into broadcasting, his influences and all those Twins prospects that have played at Hammond Stadium in recent years.

Marshall Kelner grew up in Minnetonka and went to Blake High School. He played baseball as a kid but knew early on that he would not reach the big leagues as a player.

He listened to Twins Hall of Famer John Gordon call games and knew that is what he wanted to do. He headed west, attended and graduated from USC, and jumped into the world of minor league baseball.

Kelner is a great storyteller, and you will hear that in this podcast. His first jobs were quite interesting. Hear about him playing blackjack with Jose Canseco and crazy independent ball travel.

Find out who his broadcast influences are. In Minnesota, we are blessed with some good ones, and several have been willing to help out Marshall along the way.

And we talked Twins prospects. So many of the Twins top prospects have played at Hammond Stadium the last couple of seasons. Find out a little more about Lewis, Kirilloff, Larnach, Duran, Balazovic and several other Twins minor leaguers.
