“Tigers baseball is always a winner,” Bally Sports Detroit senior vice president and general manager Greg Hammaren said Thursday. “All of us at Bally Sports Detroit are energized about this upcoming season and watching all the excitement unfold. Our crew behind the scenes and our engaging talent on camera are the best in the business. Starting with spring training, we are committed to bringing Tigers fans the absolute best coverage all season long.”
Maybin spent one season with YES Network but his stint there abruptly ended in early January as the network attempted to shake up its talent pool and try to attract some notable names.
Per the Detroit Free Press, Maybin will also continue to work as an on-air contributor at MLB Network and the Chicago Cubs’ Marquee Sports Network.
