ESPN's Dan Shulman Signs Off From "Sunday Night Baseball"

ESPN’s Dan Shulman handled the final game of his “Sunday Night Baseball” career last night amid little fanfare and much humility. The second play-by-play voice in the 28-year history of “SNB,” Shulman never referenced the fact that he was calling the final game of his seven-year “SNB” stint. Instead, in the top of the ninth inning, he highlighted cameraman Mike Chiasson, who is retiring after 28 seasons on “SNB.” Shulman handled the final out of Angels-Astros as he has so many others in his career -- by introducing the next show without bringing any attention to himself. "I'm Dan Shulman saying so long from Houston. Here comes SVP."

Earlier this year, Shulman announced that he was leaving “SNB,” citing a desire to create a better work-life balance. He will call the AL Wild Card game for ESPN, plus postseason games for ESPN Radio. Next season, he will call some non-Sunday MLB games for ESPN. The net has not decided who will replace Shulman in the “SNB” booth.
