I’m counting the seconds until ESPN hires Bruce Pearl as an analyst, but in the meantime word has come down that the “Leader” has hired the age defying Jamie Moyer as an analyst for Baseball Tonight. Via ESPN PR….
Former Major League Baseball pitcher Jamie Moyer, a 24-year Major League veteran, has joined ESPN as a Baseball Tonight analyst. Moyer will debut tomorrow, Thursday, March 31, contributing to ESPN’s Opening Day coverage (including the midnight ET episode of Baseball Tonight). He will provide analysis on Baseball Tonight throughout the season.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to work at ESPN,” said Moyer. “It’s a new challenge and I look forward to this forum as a chance to elaborate on the art of pitching as I rehab from injury this season. I hope to get back on the diamond in the future.”
Moyer, who is out for the season following Tommy John surgery, hopes to pitch in 2012.
