Orel Hershiser Joins ESPN ‘Sunday Night Baseball' Booth

Hershiser has been a regular contributor to Monday Night Baseball and Wednesday Night Baseball, as well as the Little League and College World Series. He has contributed to ESPN's studio shows, including Baseball Tonight, since 2006. He had a prior stint at ESPN in 2000-2001.
"Sunday Night Baseball distinctly offers Jon's Hall of Fame voice and the combination of Joe's Hall of Fame approach to hitting and Orel's profound pitching knowledge," said Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, production. "Collectively, they will provide compelling analysis and debate during our national game of the week."
ESPN experimented with adding a third member of the booth in 2009, when former New York Mets General Manager Steve Phillips sat in with Miller and Morgan. Phillips left the company in late 2009 following the revelation that he had an inappropriate relationship with another ESPN employee.
