Martinez leaving MASN to be Blue Jays' play-by-play man

December 11, 2009|By Sports Digest

Television broadcaster and former Blue Jays catcher Buck Martinez is leaving MASN for Rogers Sportsnet to do play-by-play for the Blue Jays' telecasts. Martinez served as color commentator for Orioles games for the past seven years. "He is a true professional," MASN spokesman Todd Webster said in a statement. "While we will miss his energy and expertise during our broadcasts, we recognize his unique opportunity to not only return to the team for whom he played, managed, and broadcast for two decades, but to take on the new challenge of doing play-by-play."
