Don Orsillo is still laughing uncontrollably during broadcasts

Don Orsillo may no longer be calling Red Sox games, but the play-by-play announcer seems to still be having fun in the broadcast booth.

Orsillo, who now calls Padres games for Fox Sports San Diego, had one of his signature laughing fits before Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Rockies.

The cause? Orsillo introduced his broadcast partner Mark Grant as “Mark Sweeney.”

Orsillo was NESN’s play-by-play voice of the Red Sox for 15 years. NESN replaced him with Dave O’Brien after last season.
