Phillies add Bourn, Durbin, Kratz and Stocker to radio broadcast team

The Phillies have added former players Michael Bourn, Chad Durbin, Erik Kratz and Kevin Stocker to their radio broadcast team, Executive Vice President David Buck announced today. The four alums will rotate working road games alongside play-by-play announcer Scott Franzke for the 2022 regular season. Phillies color analyst Larry Andersen will continue to call most home games. Additionally, Gregg Murphy will host pre- and postgame shows both at Citizens Bank Park and for road games.

“We believe the four alums who we selected will work well with Scott Franzke and bring a variety of perspectives and unique personalities to the game, making listening more entertaining,” said Buck. “Larry’s role in covering home games is a great balance, given his long history in working with Scott. He’s also a fan favorite, so we’re fortunate to still have him as part of the radio broadcast team.”

Michael Bourn! Seems like just yesterday Ed Wade was touting him for the Phillies....then trading for him once Wade got to the Astros

Bourn – a two-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glove winner and the 2012 Wilson Overall Defensive Player of the Year

Show of hands for those familiar with the Wilson award? (The glove? Willie Wilson? The Volleyball?)

Rawlings grabbed the GG sponsorship so Wilson had to cook up something. The important thing is they got it on BR's list. (And got the corporate name in there.)

Jason Heyward's got one. Andrelton's only got one. If they gave them out in 2020-21 then b-r didn't list them. Looks to be a very odd award in its early days (early 2010s) ... they gave out positional awards in each league but in 2013, they awarded 5 AL 2B, 3 3B and 6 OF but no 1B or SS. In the NL that year it was 3 Cs, 3 2B, 7 OFs and no 1B.
