As the Patriots prepare for the pre-season opener, so too does new radio play-by-play guy Bob Socci. He takes over for legendary Gil Santos who retired after 36 years as voice of the Patriots.

Socci has done play-by-play for Navy football, Patriot League sports and Pawtucket Red Sox baseball...Check out some of his work...

A reminder - you can catch Socci and analyst Scott Zolak on Sportsradio 92.9 The Ticket. Friday coverage begins at 4:30PM as the Pats play the Eagles.
