ESPN has added another big name to its Baseball Tonight broadcast team.
The network announced Friday that it has inked a deal with World Series Champion manager John Farrell to join its team. Farrell, who currently serves as an adviser for the Cincinnati Reds, led the Boston Red Sox to a World Series Championship in 2013.
Farrell is currently scheduled to make his Baseball Tonight debut next Wednesday, March 29 at midnight on ESPN2. From there, he will join the Baseball Tonight broadcast team each week throughout the 2018 Major League Baseball season ahead of each Sunday Night Baseball broadcast.
Farrell said of his new deal that he was looking forward to getting started.
“I’m excited to join ESPN and contribute to its Major League Baseball coverage,” Ferrell said.
Seth Markman, ESPN Senior Coordinating Producer, said he was happy to have Ferrell added to the network.
“John is a World Series Champion who brings a wealth of knowledge, plus the always-valuable manager’s perspective,” Markman said.
Along with his debut broadcast, he will appear again March 29 at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN.
