Good news here from ESPN, announcing that Curt Schilling is ready to return to the broadcast booth.
Three-time World Series Champion Curt Schilling, who resumed his ESPN MLB analyst role Thursday on Baseball Tonight, will make his official Sunday Night Baseball debut with Dan Shulman, John Kruk and reporter Buster Olney on Sunday, September 14, when the New York Yankees visit the first-place Baltimore Orioles. The telecast will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will be available on ESPN and WatchESPN.
ESPN announced Schilling was joining the Sunday Night Baseball booth last December. In February, Schilling announced he had been diagnosed with cancer.
Schilling will resume his analyst role in time to call what is expected to be Derek Jeter’s finalSunday Night Baseball appearance. It will mark Jeter’s 71st career appearance on “baseball’s biggest stage,” more than any other player.
Schilling returned to ESPN duties after cancer treatment on Thursday. At the time it was unknown when he would return to the broadcast booth, but it looks like it will happen immediately. This will be the first time ESPN’s planned trio of Dan Shulman, John Kruk, and Curt Schilling will be together to call a game this season.
