According to Ryan Lawrence, Comcast has added Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt to its broadcast team for all 13 Sunday Phillies’ home games. Lawrence notes that Schmidt has broadcasting experience, including a 1990 run broadcasting games for PRISM. Schmidt joins a team that now includes Tom McCarthy, Matt Stairs, and Jamie Moyer.
Schmidt was reportedly facing major health concerns and did not report to Spring Training as an instructor, a role he has held in some capacity since 2002. It appears to be a positive sign that Schmidt is well enough to join the broadcast team.
