A most deserving honor! Go Tribe! Barbara Schubert

congratulations!! as a tribe fan since childhood (too many years to list, lol), I KNOW how great you are behind the mic….very well deserved !!!!

They might want to take that back. He and Matt Underwood are two of the most biased announcers to ever put on a pair of headsets. The team should get Roger Twibell and Joe Morgan to do TV broadcasts instead of these biased meatball homers.
