McCarver Leaving Broadcast Booth: This season will be the last for Tim McCarver calling baseball games for Fox, the 71-year-old announced. "I wanted to step down while I could still do the job," McCarver said. "It's not a tough call, it's not a sad thing for me. ... But I'm going to miss Joe Buck a lot." McCarver and Buck have been broadcasting games together since 1996. Baseball's loss may be jazz music's gain.
