If you are in your 40's or older like me you used to watch NBC's Game of the Week and enjoy Joe Garagiola. Even though he is in his mid 80's he still does a few game on Arizona Diamondback games. I've watch a couple so far this season and decided to e-mail them to see if they had a schedule of his games that he will do. They sent me this:

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day and contacting us. We appreciate the opportunity to address your question. Joe is currently scheduled to work the following games:



May 21st

June 4th

July 16th

July 23rd

August 13th

August 27th



Joe is semi-retired and enjoys spending time here at the ballpark as a fan or broadcaster. Thanks you for being a fan of Joe Sr. and the D-backs. We hope to see you here at the ballpark soon.


So if you enjoyed him before you still have a chance to hear a few more times this season.

I believe he and Kubek were part of the NBC broadcast of the 1975 World Series. That was one one of the greatest of all time........

They did one or two games of the 1975 series. Curt Gowdy called most of them. I think Garagiola filled in for Gowdy a couple of games while he did the NFL.

I had to look it up...... :D

From Wikipedia:

NBC broadcast the Series on television and radio, with Curt Gowdy and Joe Garagiola alternating play-by-play along with team announcers Dick Stockton and Ned Martin (Red Sox) and Marty Brennaman (Reds) and Tony Kubek doing color commentary.


This was the final World Series broadcast for Gowdy, who had been NBC's lead play-by-play announcer for baseball since 1966. Garagiola would take over full-time as NBC's lead baseball announcer the following season.


This was also the final Series broadcast for NBC Radio, which had retained exclusive rights to the event since 1957. CBS Radio would become the exclusive national radio network for MLB beginning the following season.


This was also Stockton's only World Series; he had by then become a sportscaster with CBS Sports, remaining until 1994 when he joined Fox Sports, with which he remains today.
