Philly Radio: Mike Schmidt Joins Comcast Broadcast Team

Mike Scmidt
Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs aren't the only former Phillies transitioning to the announce booth. Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt will also join the Phils' broadcasting team for all 13 Sunday home games in 2014.

Schmidt had been a guest instructor at Phillies spring training for years, but had to bow out of that duty this spring because of an undisclosed health issue.

Schmidt becomes the newest member of a revamped Phillies announce team. Moyer and Stairs took the place of longtime color commentator Chris Wheeler and analyst/former Phillie Gary "Sarge" Matthews.

“I am extremely excited to be a part of the Phillies broadcast team,” said Schmidt. “Comcast SportsNet has put together a great lineup."

Considered by many to be the greatest third baseman in major-league history, Michael Jack Schmidt (hear Harry say it) played his entire 18-year career with the Phillies. He retired in 1989, had his number retired in 1990, and in 1995 became the 26th first-ballot Hall of Famer in major-league history.

When he retired, Schmidt held 14 major-league records, 18 National League records and 35 Phillies records.
