A former Major League Baseball player who is known not only as one of the best ballplayers of all time but also as one of the most controversial has joined the broadcast team for ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball.”
ESPN announced today that Alex Rodriguez, a World Series champion and 14-time MLB All-Star, will join the team as an analyst as part of a new multi-year agreement.
“Rodriguez will be joined by veteran baseball play-by-play broadcaster Matt Vasgersian, who will become the third-ever voice of ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’ also in a multi-year deal,” ESPN announced. “Rodriguez and Vasgersian will appear alongside returning analyst Jessica Mendoza to form ESPN’s new ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ booth, with Buster Olney reporting.”
Vasgersian replaces Dan Shulman, who stepped down at the end of the 2017 season.
