Additional notes

  • Prior to the 2000 World Series, Bob Brenly, who normally did West Coast games with Thom Brennaman, regularly joined Joe Buck and Tim McCarver in the booth for events such as the World Series and All-Star Game. But during the 2000 World Series, Brenly was relegated to simply being a field reporter. Brenly was on the verge of becoming the manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who would win the World Series under Brenly just a year later. After Brenly was dismissed by the Diamondbacks in the 2004 season, he briefly returned to FOX until being hired by the Chicago Cubs as their color commentator.
  • In 2001, Jeanne Zelasko[1] became the first woman in more than a decade to regularly host Major League Baseball games for a network. The network canceled the pre-game show (as a cost-cutting measure) following the 2008 season.
