After a 34-year broadcasting career, and the last 18 with FOX, Tim McCarver signed off for the final time last night.
Here’s the video:
It’s been quite a run for McCarver who’s called 16 of the last 18 World Series with Joe Buck, the first coming in 1996 when the Yankees beat the Braves. He went on to call 4 more Yankees championships, 3 Red Sox championships, 2 Cardinals championships, and David Cone’s perfect game in 1999.
Despite his many critics, one thing you can’t take away from McCarver is his voice. He has arguably the most classic baseball voice ever.
Now FOX has to replace McCarver in the booth, and whoever FOX names will have major shoes to fill.
