McCarver nearing milestone playoff call

Tim McCarver, the lead baseball analyst for Fox Sports, will be calling his 300th playoff game when the 2012 World Series reaches game four. McCarver has already called more post-season games than any other announcer in Major League Baseball history.
When McCarver called Monday night’s game 7 of the National League Championship Series, between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals, it was the 21st time he has broadcast a winner-take-all series game (3 in AL Division Series, 3 in NL Division Series, 3 in AL Championship Series, 6 in NL Championship Series and 6 in the World Series).
McCarver has broadcast 21 ALDS games, 15 NLDS games, 50 ALCS games (9 series), 91 NLCS games (16 series) and 119 World Series games (22 series so far). He has worked playoff games for ABC (38 games), CBS (49 games) and Fox (209 games).
