NEW YORK (AP) – Orel Hershiser, Bobby Valentine and Dan Shulman will form the new announcing team for ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball.”
The network said last month that Jon Miller and Joe Morgan would not return for a 22nd season.
Hershiser, the 1988 NL Cy Young Award winner, joined the booth as a third announcer last season.
Valentine, the former Mets and Rangers manager, became a studio analyst for ESPN last year. He managed the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan’s Pacific League from 2004-09.
Shulman has served as a regular play-by-play voice for baseball games on ESPN since 2002. He also calls college basketball with Dick Vitale.
All I can say is, thank God. Hopefully, we won’t have to hear mangled names, lame and predictable analysis, and just plain stupid comments any more. Were you a fan of the duo or are you also happy to see them leave?
