This release from NESN:
NESN announced that former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield will join the network as a Red Sox studio analyst. Wakefield’s first appearance will be Saturday at 9 p.m. when he joins Tom Caron and Jim Rice for one-hour of pre-game coverage before the Red Sox take on the Mariners in Seattle.
“Tim Wakefield has been an integral part of the fabric of the Red Sox and the New England community for the past 17 years,” said Sean McGrail, NESN President and CEO. “We are extremely happy to add Tim to our all-star lineup of studio analysts and believe that he will bring a unique perspective to our coverage with his knowledge of the team and the rest of the league.”
Wakefield retired in February after a 19-year MLB career, 17 years with the Red Sox.
