CIVIC THURSDAY SPEAKER - SHOOTY BABITT
Babitt was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 25th round of the 1977 Major League Baseball Draft. He began his career with a seven-game hitting streak, the second such longest streak in Oakland A's history.
Babitt was a long-time advance scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks, and since 2008, he has been a scout for the New York Mets. Additionally, since 2008, he has worked as a television color analyst on the pre- and post-game shows for Oakland A's home games on NBC Sports California. Beginning in 2014, he also substitutes for game analyst Ray Fosse on 20 A's games per season.
