Regarded by many as baseball's premier television analyst, Tim McCarver serves as the lead game analyst for the MLB on FOX. Familiar to all fans that watch baseball's big games, McCarver won an Emmy award for "Outstanding Sports Event Analyst" in 2000 and 2003. Teaming with play-by-play announcer Joe Buck, McCarver announces the All-Star Game and the World Series.
McCarver joined FOX Sports after a two-year stint as a game analyst for The Baseball Network broadcasts on ABC and NBC Sports. After 16 seasons as an analyst for New York Mets baseball broadcasts, McCarver spent two seasons broadcasting New York Yankees’ games. In 2002 he was the analyst for the San Francisco Giants. McCarver served as lead analyst for CBS Sports' broadcasts of Major League Baseball-including the All-Star Game, National League Championship Series, and World Series from 1990 to 1993. He teamed with Joe's father Jack Buck for the network's first two seasons (1990-1991) and then Sean McDonough for the last two (1992-1993).
One of a handful of four-decade players in major league history (1959-80), McCarver played in two All-Star Games (1966, 1967), three League Championship Series (1976-78), was a member of two world championship teams in St. Louis (1964, 1967), and was the hottest hitter in the 1964 World Series against the New York Yankees when he led all regulars with a .478 batting average.
Currently McCarver is the host of his own show on MSG Network, The Tim McCarver Show. It is an interview-style show with guests ranging from athletes to authors to politicians. A successful author, McCarver's most recent efforts, The Perfect Season and Tim McCarver's Baseball For Brain Surgeons And Other Fans: Understanding and Interpreting the Game So You Can Watch It Like a Pro, were written with acclaimed sportswriter and film and television critic Danny Peary. His other book, O Baby, I Love It!, shows his close knowledge of the game.
