Can you tell the FOX Sports Florida broadcasters apart?

New, 2 comments

Take our 2019 season quiz to prove it!

The 2019 Marlins lacked consistency. Their active roster was populated with an awkward mix of first- and second-year players still getting acclimated to The Show and veterans who had already exited their physical primes. Even the most valuable contributors were subjected to injuries, Triple-A reps, midseason trades, etc.

But from spring training through the regular season finale, we could count on Paul Severino and Todd Hollandsworth being there. Just like in 2018, this couple handled the vast majority of Marlins game broadcasts on FOX Sports Florida.

Overall, they have worked close to 300 games together...and fans still struggle to distinguish between their voices? Apparently, yes.

Near the beginning of the Severino/Hollandsworth era, I created an audio quiz. The results indicated that lots of folks were genuinely confused.

(Although their roles on the broadcast are very different—Severino is the play-by-play announcer, Hollandsworth does color commentary—I purposefully chose clips of them bantering outside of live action.)

I hope you’ve been studying! All eight clips embedded below are from the 2019 season, featuring either Paul Severino or Todd Hollandsworth. Make your best guesses in the polls following each clip, then grade yourself using the answer key in the comments section.
