One thing I've been wondering recently...

In response to Teeple's fantastic News and Views segment, I have just one question that has been bothering me recently, and it is adressed to the baseball broadcasters of America: how do you pronounce "Chavez?" I always thought this was cut and dry and you put emphasis on the first syllable (SHAAA-vez), but very recently, I have heard Marty Brenneman and Matt Underwood accentuate the second syllable (Sha-VEZ).

Does anyone have any insight? I thought this was pretty cut and dry until very recently, and now I am completely perplexed.

Eric SHAH-vez plays for Oakland,

the Dodgers play in sha-VEZ Ravine.
