Kaline Pinch-Hits On Tigers Radio
May 29, 2009 at 5:21 AM (PT)
Hall of Famer AL KALINE returned to the DETROIT TIGERS broadcast booth THURSDAY night for a two-night stint as guest analyst, filling in as regular analyst JIM PRICE handled play-by-play on the TIGERS radio network.
PRICE's usual partner DAN DICKERSON remains sidelined by his leg injury sustained while jogging in KANSAS CITY last week, although DICKERSON plans to return to the mic as early as TUESDAY. FOX SPORTS NET DETROIT's JOHN KEATING has been filling in on most nights for DICKERSON, but KALINE, who provided analysis on the TIGERS TV network for 26 years until leaving in 2001, dropped in THURSDAY and will handle TONIGHT's broadcast as well.
The TIGERS air on a network headed by flagship CBS RADIO Sports WXYT-F (97.1 THE TICKET)/DETROIT.
