Moultrie enjoying her first season announcing games

Emilea Moultrie is a rookie at the Dallas County Sportsplex. She’s still learning the ropes and — so far — she’s been able to push all the right buttons.
As one of the voices many people hear during youth baseball and softball games at the Sportsplex — working as one of the facility’s game announcers — Moultrie has turned something “she’s always wanted to do” into a summertime job.
Being a senior at Selma High School Moultrie needed a job for the summer and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
“I wanted a summer job, and this is something I always wanted to try,” Moultrie said, adding the schedule still gives her time to enjoy her time away from school. “I usually call two games a day for three days out of the week.”
While Moultrie is new to calling games, she has played softball before. During her sophomore year at Selma High School, Moultrie played right field for the Lady Saints.
In addition to her work at the Sportsplex, Moultrie has worked hard in the classroom, earning induction into the National Honor Society and has enrolled for dual enrollment courses at Wallace Community College-Selma.
But, Moultrie admits she’s just like any other typical high school girl in that she enjoys time shopping, hanging out with friends and travelling.
When Moultrie graduates next year she would like to attend school at either UAB of University of South Alabama. If Moultrie does not go to either one of those schools she would like to attend the University of Tennessee.
“I want to purse a degree in biology, then move on to pharmacy school,” Moultrie said.
