McCarver To Step Down From Fox MLB Booth After '13 Season
Published March 27, 2013
The 71-year-old added that health was not a factor in his decision, and he plans to work Fox’ entire schedule this season. He said, “It’s time to cut back.” McCarver noted that he had been thinking about retiring for two years and informed Fox Sports co-President & co-COO Eric Shanks of his decision in February. Joe Buck, McCarver’s booth partner for 17 years, said, “What he’s meant to me goes beyond professional. … I’ve said it before, I don’t want to do these games with anyone but Tim.” Shanks left the door open for McCarver to appear on the new Fox Sports 1 channel, but McCarver said there was not a plan in place for him at FS1.
