On the air: Donn Pall and Robin Ventura were announced as replacements in the television broadcast booth for Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, as the veteran play-by-play man recovers from Wednesday's surgery to repair a detached retina in his right eye. Pall joins Darrin Jackson for the final two games at home against the Royals and the three-game weekend set in Toronto, while Ventura teams up with Jackson for next week's three games against Tampa Bay, ending the six-game road trip. Harrelson is expected back for the start of the four-game home set against the Orioles.

Oh, that #23.

When I saw this thread title, I was going to post that Jermaine Dye was back in the lineup (and started coming out of his slump - hooray flu!) two days ago. :wink:

Bringing in ex-Sox favorites in all aspects of the organization (Coaching, management and broadcast) is one of the smartest things JR can do. It took him a LONG while to figure this out

Robin was long overdue in the broadcast booth! I don't have cable, so I had a friend tape that Spring Training game he did with Hawk. Maybe I'm biased because he was my favorite player growing up and I became a Sox fan just as he joined the team in 1990, but I thought Ventura did a good job. :smile: Sounds like I'll have to have someone tape me at least one of those Tampa Bay games! :wink:

Robin was my favorite player of the 90s too but he was horrible over the spring. Although, I doubt it could be worse than today's broadcast....

How do you spell a gold glove winning third basemen: V-E-N-T-U-R-A
It's great to see so many guys from the 93 team around the 05 team like: Raines, Cora, Guillen, and now Ventura broadcasting the Tampa Bay series!

Anyone know how Hawk's surgery went today? I hope he's doing well and I can't wait to hear him back in the booth!

Who were they gonna get? There's not exactly an experienced PBP man that's waiting in the wings for an 8 game stint
