Today we say Happy Baseball Birthday! to one of my favorite baseball announcers, Dan Shulman of Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN.
Dan is a terrific baseball announcer, and gives ESPN another solid anchor to their Sunday Night crew, which now includes former big leaguer Aaron Boone, and USA Olympic Gold Medal Winner Jessica Mendoza.
I wasn't happy originally when ESPN didn't bring back Hall of Fame announcer Jon Miller, the current voice of the San Francisco Giants, and lead Sunday Night play by play voice for decades, but Shulman is such a good baseball announcer, he knows baseball, and is always prepared.
Dan has also broadcast Monday and Wednesday Night Baseball on ESPN before becoming the lead play by play on Sunday Night Baseball.
Dan Shulman is graduate of the University of Western Ontario, and started his career broadcasting in Canada before joining ESPN.
Happy Baseball Birthday! Dan Shulman...PLAY BALL!
