  • Buck won't be among Cardinals broadcasters this season

    The Associated Press




    ST. LOUIS --

    A 47-season run of having a Buck in the booth for St. Louis Cardinals games is coming to an end.


    Joe Buck said this week he is dropping his role as a broadcaster of Cardinal games for FSN Midwest, even though he'll do some national games at Busch Stadium for Fox Sports.

    He has been doing play-by-play for some games every season since his debut at age 21, in 1991.

    His father, Jack Buck, joined the team's radio broadcast in 1954, took a year off in 1960 and then returned as the voice of the Cardinals until falling ill after the 2001 season. He died the following year.

    Joe Buck has gone on to become the lead play-by-play man for both baseball and the NFL for the Fox network.

          A. Tim Mc Carver factor.

          B. Cubs/Cardinals or Yanks/Sox. If the Sox/Yanks are more in contention, where do you think he'll be?

                      My guess is that a night off is more valuable to him these days than another announcing gig.

                          Said he just wants to go to games and watch them with his daugters.

                          Guy works nonstop....just clears up the schedule. Good for him.

                              Totally understandable, but interesting how life works. I'll bet there was a time when he was calling Triple-A games that he couldn't ever imagine turning down Cardinals assignments.
