At 22 years of age, Jeremiah Paprocki just completed his first season as the Chicago Cubs' public address announcer. In fact, Paprocki established a few firsts for the Cubs organization. For starters, he was the youngest ever to assume the role of PA announcer at 21 years old. In addition, he was also the first Black PA announcer in the team's history.

As a result of the milestones established by Paprocki, the microphone used during the historic 2021 season now has a new home in Cooperstown. As indicated by the man himself, at 22 years old, Jeremiah Paprocki is in the Hall of Fame.

The Voice of Wrigley Field has broken barriers in his first season as a professional. Over the course of time, its very likely that Cubs fans will see more memorable milestones from Paprocki as he continues to serenade the Wrigley faithful with his voice throughout Chicago summers.
