Former Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman will call winter ball games in Puerto Rico, per report

Former Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman will call games for the Roberto Clemente League in Puerto Rico this season, reports The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal. Brennaman resigned in September after using an anti-gay slur on the air.

“I made a comment tonight that I am deeply ashamed of,” Brennaman said the night of the incident in August. “I am so very, very sorry. I pride myself as a man of faith. I don’t know if I’ll be putting on this headset again. That is not who I am and never has been. I’d like to think I have some people that can back that up. I am very sorry and I beg your forgiveness.”

I'm shocked you would use such language! What the hell is wrong with you?!

It's capital, with an 'a'! Capitol is a building, not a city!

Geez.

Is there anyone there that Brennaman can bash for daring to take pitches outside of the strike zone instead of swinging at them? He's gonna miss Joey Votto.
