Matt Vasgersian Talks New "Sunday Night Baseball" Booth

As the veteran play-by-play voice in a completely revamped “Sunday Night Baseball” booth, Matt Vasgersian is the one responsible for setting up his booth mates, Jessica Mendoza and Alex Rodriguez. Vasgersian joined the SBJ/SBD Media Podcast on Sunday afternoon, a few hours before Mets-Nationals, to talk about how he expects the booth’s chemistry to grow as the season wears on.

Vasgersian identified Kauffman Stadium, Angel Stadium and Camden Yards as the best ballparks from which to call a game. “There are more good ones than bad ones. If we were having this conversation in the late '80s when Three Rivers and Riverfront and The Vet and other blights on society like that were still around, it would be a whole different discussion,” he said. As for the much-maligned broadcast booth at Nationals Park, where he called last night’s game, he said: “It’s too high. Period. You’re going to make mistakes.”
