Ripken to debut as an in-game analyst Sunday

Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. will be joining Ernie Johnson (play-by-play) and John Smoltz (analyst) in the broadcast booth to serve as a game analyst for the first time in his career on Sunday afternoon on TBS. The trio will call a match-up of American League postseason contenders when the Baltimore Orioles host the New York Yankees from Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The booth appearance will conclude a special week for Ripken, who will have a statue unveiled in his honor on Thursday, September 6, the 17th anniversary of becoming baseball’s “Iron Man.”
