Jussssst a bit outside of the norm.

Like a mini Bob Uecker, a 12-year-old boy will announce the White Sox game at U.S. Cellular Field for a half-inning tomorrow night.

During years of speech therapy, Tinley Park's Ryan Meade, read the White Sox lineup to help him pronounce his words.

Now, after winning ESPN Zone's White Sox Junior Broadcast contest in July, Meade'll intro Sox batters in the third inning. The Sox play Oakland.

"A 1-2-3 inning would be bad," Ryan told the Sun-Times. "I hope they bat around."
