Tim McCarver not quite ready for retirement

Tim McCarver has amassed some impressive numbers in his lifetime, and that extends beyond the 72 candles that were on the birthday cake presented to him Wednesday late in Fox’s broadcast of Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

He has spent 55 years in professional baseball, 21 as a player and 34 as a broadcaster. He has been paired with Joe Buck on Fox’s baseball broadcasts for the past 18 seasons. This is the 29th straight season McCarver is calling the playoffs for one network or another.
