Last week, Rogers announced that Dan Shulman will be joining the Blue Jays’ broadcast team for the next two seasons. It will be on a part-time basis as Shulman will continue his duties with ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Nevertheless, there was a sense of nostalgia and excitement.
Shulman had a prominent on-air role during the early years of Sportsnet 590 (back when it was known as the FAN 1430). He was even the host of Prime Time Sports at one point.
Certain Jays fans will also remember Shulman as the team’s play-by-play voice from 1995-2001 on TSN. He worked alongside Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler.
In honour of Shulman’s return to the Jays’ broadcast booth, here are some clips from his TSN days. Starting off is a commercial he appeared in with Martinez, Roger Clemens and Benito Santiago. Next are seperate intros with Martinez and Tabler, followed by a play-by-play clip from a 2001 broadcast.
