The Baseball Network announcers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of announcers who called Major League Baseball telecasts for the joint venture (lasting for the 19941995 seasons) between Major League Baseball, ABC and NBC called The Baseball Network. Announcers who represented each of the teams playing in the respective games were typically paired with each other on regular season Baseball Night in America telecasts. ABC used Al Michaels, Jim Palmer, Tim McCarver and Lesley Visser as the lead broadcasting team. Meanwhile, NBC used Bob Costas, Joe Morgan, Bob Uecker and Jim Gray as their lead broadcasting team.
