Neil Best of Newsday has learned that WFAN’s Howie Rose will leave the radio broadcast booth where he has done a brilliant job as the Mets’ play by play man, and join Tim McCarver during Saturday’s FOX broadcast of the Mets versus the Phillies.
For those of you still watching the Mets . . . WFAN play-by-play man Howie Rose will call the game against the Phillies on Fox Saturday afternoon. Rose has worked games for Fox before, but never before has he worked with Tim McCarver. He said he is looking forward to it.
I’m looking forward to it too!
Howie ranks right up there with all the great Mets radio and TV announcers of the present and the past.
Be sure to tune in to FOX at 4:00 PM Eastern Time and enjoy the broadcast as well as the game.
