Jamie Harrison, President of the United States Youth Cricket Association, will be among the guests Tuesday at 1PM on WYPR (88.1 FM) for "Midday with Dan Rodricks." Midday is WYPR's daily public affairs program and is hosted by longtime Baltimore Sun columnist Dan Rodricks.
The topic on Tuesday is "Bringing Cricket To American Children," focusing on the USYCA Schools Program, which donates cricket sets and instruction to schools across the country. Many school districts in Maryland have already benefited from the free program.
Also joining Dan will be Mike Young, the American who is the fielding coach for the Australian national cricket team, and Sandra Ibarra, an American-born cricketer of Mexican heritage from Los Angeles, who just picked up the game a couple of years ago. Both are supporters of the USYCA initiative.
Dan Rodricks has won numerous regional and national journalism awards, and he has frequently been cited as Baltimore's favorite columnist by Baltimore magazine and the City Paper. Previously, Dan was a commentator on WBAL-TV, host of a talk show on WBAL-AM, host of documentaries on Maryland Public Television and, from 1995 to 2000, host of the popular Rodricks For Breakfast show on WMAR-TV. He is the author of two books about Baltimore and lives in the city.
