Gabrielle Lucivero worked as the play-by-play/color commentator for the Falmouth Commodores during the 2013 season and returned as the first ever Commodores Field Reporter in 2014. She now works as a sports multimedia journalist and anchor for NBC Connecticut in West Hartford, covering New York to Boston pro teams as well as high school athletics, all as a one-woman-band. That’s right, she carries all that gear, and uses it too! One big bonus is that Gabrielle gets to see some familiar CCBL names passing through Dunkin Donuts Park with the Hartford Yard Goats. Go ‘Dores!
