Tim Sheridan’s Bio
The Boys of Spring is the creation of longtime Cubs spring training public address announcer Timothy J. Sheridan. In the spring of 1984, Tim started helping out at old HoHoKam Park as a part-time public address announcer / part-time gofer. It was spring of 1989 when he took over the full-time P.A. duties at Hohokam Park and has been a fixture at Cubs spring training ever since.
With a passion for photography and video, Tim is a one-man film crew, capturing images of Cubs spring rituals at Fitch, and HoHoKam Parks since his early days as the Cubs “voice of spring”. A die-hard Cubs fan, Tim truly loves being a small part of the one-and-a-half month, friendly atmosphere that is Arizona’s Cactus League. With a spot in the press box directly behind home plate, Tim spent 13 spring seasons at Old Hohokam Park in a seat next to Harry Caray. Considering the Cubs lack of winning teams from 1946 to 1983 the timing of Tim’s entry onto the spring training scene (1984) could not have been better, making him pre-season witness to a Cubs Renaissance,
5 division championships and the wild card team of 1998.
Tim has a college background in broadcast communications, he’s worked in marketing and community relations, interned at NBC TV, and worked five years as editor for FOX 10 TV in Phoenix. After leaving FOX, Tim formed his own video and film production company. The company handles a wide range of projects, but his true passion which combines work and play, is the Chicago Cubs.
