2013 to be the Last for Broadcasted Tim McCarver


Broadcast legend Tim McCarver announced Wednesday that he will be hanging up the headset at the end of the 2013 season. Fox’s lead baseball analyst has been a mainstay of Major League Baseball for 34 years and has manned the broadcast booth for 28 of them, 18 with play-by-play man Joe Buck.

McCarver stated that he wanted to retire while he could still do the job. He informed Fox in February that he would not seek a new contract when his current one ends at the end of this year.

McCarver may already have plans for his retirement, per comments made on a conference call from his home. Those plans include taking cooking classes in Italy and reading – at least until reading gets old.
