Atlanta Braves Broadcast Booth Features Usual Suspects With Slight Change

Fox Sports South and SportSouth announced the Braves broadcast team for the 2011 season, and it features the normal group with one slight change.

Chip Caray and Joe Simpson return for the majority of the games as the two main guys, Chip being play-by-play and Joe as color analyst. However, Tom Glavine will receive a bigger role in the booth during Peachtree TV broadcasts.

Remember the announcement not long ago that FSN was producing the PTV games this season, allowing more people outside the market to watch the games. Apparently those people just got even better news because it means not as much Chip during those broadcasts. Joe will move over to play-by-play and Glavine will serve as analyst.

Glavine may not wow anyone with his humor or remarks, but he is a sound analyst who knows what he's talking about, unlike so many in baseball. At the least, he won't cause as many facepalms on a nightly basis as Chip.

Ron Gant and Brian Jordan are returning for a select number of PTV games and continue to do the Braves Live show. And according to Talking Chop, a couple other ex-Braves will be new faces in the booth this year. Looking forward to seeing who it will be.
