Jose Mota recently made history by becoming the first major-league broadcaster to do play-by-play on a team’s English and Spanish radio broadcasts and to do color analyst work on English and Spanish television broadcasts.  He has worked for the Los Angeles Angels for 16 years in these various capacities.
