Peter Gammons had a little bit of time off for the holidays (much like myself), but is ready to head back to work. Gammons will make his MLB Network debut this Wednesday, January 6th, and the topic of discussion will be the 2010 HOF Class (which will also be on announced on Wednesday)….
Hall of Fame award-winning baseball writer Peter Gammons will make his debut on MLB Network with the 2010 Baseball Hall of Fame Election announcement show on Wednesday, January 6. MLB Network’s Bob Costas, Harold Reynolds, Matt Vasgersian, Tom Verducci, Jon Heyman and Ken Rosenthal and National Baseball Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson will also be part of the 90-minute announcement show beginning live at 1:00 p.m. ET. Gammons, Costas, Reynolds, Vasgersian, Verducci, Heyman and Rosenthal will then recap of the 2010 Hall of Fame ballot results with the hour-long show Class of 2010 at 9:00 p.m. ET. This will be the first time that Gammons, a baseball journalist for 40 years, and Costas, a 30-year sports broadcasting veteran, will work together.
Also on Wednesday, Victor Rojas, Dan Plesac, Sean Casey and Jon Heyman will cover the latest updates and moves all 30 clubs are making and planning in preparation for the upcoming season with Hot Stove, MLB Network’s nightly studio show in the offseason, at 6:00 p.m. ET.
There couldn’t be a better opportunity to use Peter Gammons in his first time on the network. The Hall of Fame is one of Gammons’ specialties, and of course he’s a HOFer himself. I’ll try to give it a watch an let your know how he does. Not like it will be a hard transition.
