Sign of the Times- Sportscasters Are Telecommuting

Phillies broadcaster Tom McCarthy has been announcing the Caribbean World Series for MLB Network from…the balmy studios of Seacaucus, New Jersey.

When asked if it was funny doing a game, but not from the location, McCarthy wrote in an email, ” Not really. I have the crowd in my ear and there is a producer and director on site and in the studio with us.  I have enjoyed it. Much of the Olympics, World Cup soccer, even tennis matches other than the big ones are done this way.  The technology is great.”

  1. He is so lucky, there are guys in Reading, chopping at the bit for those gigs!

  2. I think this is the year T-Mac quietly picks up a few more innings as the Phillies “quietly” phase out Harry Kalas.

    Also, a source tells me that Harry won’t be making some of the longer road trips this year as per the Phillies.
