ESPN is changing its Sunday Night Baseball announcing lineup for the 2022 season.

Longtime SportsCenter and Baseball Tonight anchor Karl Ravech (pictured above) will take over play-by-play duties from MLB Network's Matt Vasgersian.  He'll be joined in the booth by longtime ESPN baseball analyst Eduardo Perez and five-time World Series champion David Cone.

Cone and Perez will take over for Alex Rodriguez, who's been doing games for Sunday Night Baseball since 2018.

Cone, after his retirement from baseball in 2001, got into broadcasting and is now the lead color commentator for New York Yankees games on the YES Network.

As for Perez, after his 14-year professional baseball career ended in 2006, he joined ESPN as an analyst.  He has been in the booth for MLB, college baseball, and the Little League World Series.

Alex Rodriguez isn't going away from ESPN.  He will be a part of a "ManningCast"-style simulcast of Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN2 with veteran New York broadcaster Michael Kay for eight Sundays throughout the 2022 season.  ARod

Ravech has been with ESPN since 1993.  He has hosted SportsCenter, and covered golf and college basketball for the network since then.  He has been an announcer for ESPN's coverage of MLB, Little League Baseball, and the College World Series.

Sunday Night Baseball has been around since 1990, when it was created as part of the then-record $1 billion TV deal with CBS and ESPN.  Jon Miller (who is still the radio announcer for the San Francisco Giants) and Hall of Famer Joe Morgan were in the booth for most of the past 30+ years.
