PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Thursday former Diamondbacks manager Bob Brenly is back with the team, but this time as a broadcaster.
The announcement, made by D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall, said the new television broadcast team will feature the former D-backs manager and Emmy Award winner Brenly as the analyst while current ESPN "Baseball Tonight" and "SportsCenter" host and veteran broadcaster Steve Berthiaume will handle play-by-play duties.
Brenly took the team to a World Series win in 2001 before being fired in 2004. He still has a home in Phoenix.
Brenly replaced Steve Stone in the Chicago Cubs' broadcast booth in 2005, according to the Chicago Tribune .
His decision to leave the Cubs TV booth was reported by WGN-Ch. 9 on Wednesday.
Brenly is expected to replace Mark Grace in the Diamondbacks broadcast booth.
Grace was put on leave after a DUI arrest in August.
Brenly received a standing ovation when he was announced to the crowd during a Cubs-Diamondbacks game at Chase Field last month.
The announcement that Brenly will replace Grace in the TV broadcast booth could come soon, according to the Chicago Tribune.
