Hawk Harrelson Likely Won't Do Significant White Sox Play-By-Play Work After '17

This season will likely be White Sox broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson's last to do "significant play-by-play work," according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. Harrelson said, "Put it this way: It's that time." Harrelson this winter expressed a goal to keep going until '20, which would "give him eight decades in baseball." Harrelson: "The main thing is, I just want to be in baseball four more years, not necessarily broadcasting." Harrelson said he will do White Sox broadcasts this season, "and if I decide to do some games next year ... it’s up to them." Harrelson agreed to a multiyear extension before the '16 season. Harrelson’s plan would allow Jason Benetti, who worked most White Sox home games alongside analyst Steve Stone in '16, to "step in full-time" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 3/17).
