BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Alex Rodriguez and Matt Vasgersian will be the announcers for ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” series, marking the first time since 2007 that the network is going with a two-person booth for its signature game. Jessica Mendoza had been part of the booth since 2015 but has been moved to more studio work as well as calling weeknight games.

This is the third season Rodriguez and Vasgersian will be calling the Sunday night games with Buster Olney reporting from the dugout. While Mendoza recently signed a contract extension, Rodriguez and Vasgersian are going into the final season of their ESPN deals. They also work for Fox.

Mendoza’s first game is March 30 when Detroit hosts Kansas Cit.
