Television analyst Tim McCarver, who called 23 World Series and 20 All-Star Games in a 55-year career in Major League Baseball, will step down from his broadcasting position at Fox Sports after this season.

McCarver, 71, announced the decision on a conference call. He said that while he is healthy and still feels passion for baseball, “it’s time to cut back.”

“I am very proud to have been a part of all the things that make this game so special for all of us who follow it day-to-day, week-to-week and year-to-year,” he said on the call.

McCarver’s baseball career began in 1959 as a catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, with whom he won World Series titles in 1964 and 1967. As a broadcaster he has worked 28 consecutive MLB playoffs on network television and has been part of Fox’s lead broadcasting team alongside play-by-play analyst Joe Buck since 1996.

McCarver said he has not yet decided if he might work occasional games in the future.
