This Sunday, TBS makes the announcements for the MLB All-Star Game rosters. Both American and National League rosters will be unveiled. This year, Matt Winer from NBA TV comes over to host the show. Ernie Johnson, Jr. had been the host for the past few years. Joining him will be Dennis Eckersley of NESN, David Wells and Cal Ripken, Jr.
It would be nice if TBS got the cable contract to the MLB All-Star Game Home Run Derby as I’m tired of Chris Berman yelling and trying to make local references to endear himself to the local community, but I digress. Here’s the TBS press release.
