I'm Nick Badders


I'm the Play-by-Play Voice of the Omaha Storm Chasers (Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals). 2023 marks my seventh season in professional baseball and first with the Storm Chasers. Previously, I spent two seasons with the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Kansas City's Double-A affiliate) and two in the Australian Baseball League with the Melbourne Aces. I also call select games for the Arkansas Razorbacks, on the Razorbacks Sports Network from Learfield and SEC Network +, across a variety of sports with a concentration on baseball and softball.

I graduated from Arizona State's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and outside of broadcasting, was an award-winning sports photographer.​ While still in school, I spent the summer of 2019 with the Elizabethton Twins (Minnesota Twins Advanced Rookie Affiliate) and summer of 2018 with the Sonoma Stompers (Independent Pacific Association).

At ASU, I served as the voice of Sun Devil women's soccer and women's ice hockey, while having also called ASU basketball, baseball, softball and men's ice hockey and shot photos of nearly every sport Sun Devil Athletics has to offer.


"Any good broadcast, not just an Olympic broadcast, should have texture to it. It should have information, should have some history, should have something that's offbeat, quirky, humorous, and where called for it, should have journalism, and judiciously it should also have commentary. That's my ideal." - Bob Costas


After two seasons with the Northwest Arkansas Naturals,

I was named the play-by-play voice of the Omaha Storm Chasers, moving up to Triple-A from Double-A within the Kansas City Royals organization.
